R-E-S-P-E-C-T....find out what it means to us!

For the month of February, the character trait that we are focusing on is "Respect". Today I let my kids create their own skits about being respectful. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with how well they turned out! They were so good that we invited the other fourth grade class out to the hallway to see our performances. Here are a few pics of the different skits! (Sorry for the quality, the only camera we had available was the one on a cell phone!)

 In this picture the girls are being disrespectful by snatching the the boys' ball.

 For this skit we learned that it is not nice to push people down!

Like I said, they all did such a good job! I pretty much just gave them free reign with the activity so that I could see what they would do. (This is the first time that we have done something like this, but I promise it will not be the last!) Two of the groups even went so far as to include a definition of respect in their skits. I am so proud of them! Way to go guys!
