Specialty Shoutout for Self Control
Will in Mrs. Nelson's class was very focused on his art project this week and added some wonderful creative ideas. I was impressed by his concentration as it is not always easy to stay focused especially for our youngest friends. Great job this week Will!
Will also demonstrated self control in spanish class this week by controlling his impulses to talk to friends during instruction time and he did an awesome job limning up this morning in before care. Keep it up William!
Omar showed this month's character trait of self control in Technology class by resisting to shout out when he was done with his project. After catching himself a few times, Omar reread the rubric and continued to notice elements he could add or improve to make his work better. Not only did he control his shouting out, he also showed self control by refocusing his attention to improve his work. Awesome job Omar!
Muzain in Mrs. Plass' class continues to demonstrate self-control every week in music class. She always does her best to avoid distractions and remains focused and engaged during vocal rehearsals for the "Lion King." During a long choreography rehearsal this week, Muzain showed self control by following the dance steps and standing still and listening when new steps were being taught. Muzain continues to lead by example every week and is a great role model for self control! Great job!
