August Virtue: Caring
“Showing others they are important!”
Caring: Caring is showing concern for others and using your words and actions to help others.

Caring in the Classroom includes:
– Caring means you remember to share with others.
– Caring means we use our words and actions to help others.
– Caring means we work hard to solve problems because we care about our friends.
I will…
– Remember to use my words when I am upset.
– Offer to help others.
– Stop doing what I am doing when someone says “No thank you” or asks me to stop.
Practical Application: 3 Tips for Encouraging Caring
1) Practice Caring at home. If you have pets, allowing your child to get the pet fresh water or to pet them gently or help you feed the pet. If your child has siblings, they can practice caring by doing something to help their sibling.
2) Talk about all of the community workers who help to take care of us and keep us safe (police, firefighters, teachers, people at the grocery store who make sure our food isn’t rotten, park workers who keep the parks clean, lifeguards at the pool, etc).
3) Be intentional about your use of technology. Put down your phone when your child talks to you, turn off the television, leave the phone in the car when you go to the park. Model how important your children are to you by giving them your full attention.
