Chores help us think about the needs of others.

on February 1, 2013

When school started, we resumed our chore schedule in lunch buddies.  We believe that chores help us think about the needs of others.  We use a chart and rotate the schedule.

Most of the students are happy to help out and clean up after lunch buddies because it is the right thing to do.  There are a few who say “No, that’s gross” but they do their chore because they earn tokens.

Now we are encouraging the students to offer to help.  This requires a great deal of modeling and reminding because it means you have to stop thinking about yourself and think about others.

Offering to help keeps others thinking good thoughts and feeling good about you!

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you have been utilizing?
    I’m having some small security issues with my latest site
    and I would like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?
