The Leader in Me Family Connections for January

This month, we ask our families to practice Habit 5~ Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood, at home by completing one or more of the ideas below:

Story Time
Read a story together. After reading, talk about the characters’ feelings. Did you ever feel that way?
What did you do?
Talk Time
Practice active listening. State back in your own words what your child says using feeling words when appropriate.
Work Time
Have family members switch chores in effort to understand how it feels to do what someone else usually does.
Play Time
Play a game together where the goal is act out a feeling and see who can guess what that feeling is.
Family Time
As a family, work together on Habit #5. Focus on listening, restating what was said, and asking questions to be sure you understand.
