Word Of The Month: Co-operation

Developing Champions For Life

Dear Parents & Guardians,

In February we will be working on the character lesson: COOPERATION.

Cooperation is a skill that must be learned by all children. We are in a unique position to help children learn how to build cooperation.

When this skill is present, the child understands how to balance his or her own needs and wants with the needs and wants of others.  It’s easy to assume that cooperation means the child does what the adult wants however that’s not the case.  True cooperation is a give and take between people that ends up with something they both agree on.

Here is a guideline regarding children and cooperation based on age:

  • With children ages 3 and 4; they are learning how to follow rules. Teach them how to follow the rules without getting angry.
  • With children ages 5 and 6; they are learning how to problem solve. Teach them about making choices that are fair for everyone involved.
  • With children ages 7 and 9; they are learning how to work in groups. Teach them not to exclude anyone.
  • With children ages 10 and up; they are learning the power of support. Teach them how to encourage each other and make everyone feel needed.

Be sure to point out when you see cooperation displayed at home.  Acknowledging them when they cooperate and explaining the benefits from their cooperation is the best way to build this skill.

Thank you for allowing us to be a positive influence on your children and we look forward to watching our youthful students demonstrate their co-operation skills in class.

Sincerely,

Digger Barnes
