March is Reading Month Author

We are excited to bring in this year’s March Is Reading Month author, Peter Raymundo.

He is now a writer and illustrator of children’s books such as The Monkey Goes Bananas and The Lazy Hippo, and a chapter book series, The Third Grade Mermaid. He will be discussing story structure, drawing, creativity, and story basics along with drawing demonstrations for each grade level during school on March 25th.

This month’s Habit: Habit 4 Think Win-Wing

Activity: Win-Win Organizer

Due Date: February 28, 2019

Habit #4 - Think Win-Win- Everyone can Win!

What this means: Think about others as well as yourself. Long-term relationships require mutual respect and mutual benefit.

“When conflict arises, I look for third alternatives.”

“I balance courage for getting what I want, with

consideration for what others want.”

How can I do this in my life?

1. Live by the Golden Rule- Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.
