Social Emotional Learning ( Nov. 16th)

Good Morning Boren Bears. This is your friendly Enrichment team with a few words of wisdom. 

Have you ever said, "Hey, you did that on purpose!" because someone did something unkind? Doing something on purpose doesn't always mean doing something bad. You can do good and wonderful things on purpose, too. You can do a good deed on purpose. You can plan to be an astronaut or a teacher on purpose.

Someone wise once said,

First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do [on purpose].

So ask yourself this: "What kind of person will I be? Will I be responsible on purpose? Will I be helpful? Will I plan to do good in the world? And then do this, too. If you catch someone doing a good deed, say to him or her, "Hey, you did that on purpose!" That way, we can all remember that doing something on purpose can be a very good thing. 

With something to think about, this is your friendly Enrichment team. Make it a good day... or not. The choice is yours.
