In class Juan Pablo the chameleon teaches us how to be a kind and caring friend. Below are some of the phrases we us in class to help us learn to make good choices.

The phrases we use in class are in parentheses.The underlined/BOLD ones are the ones we have done in class!

Please ask you child about these and reinforce them at home too.

1. Following Directions   ( Follow directions right away)

2. Handling Disappointment ( We get what we need, not always what we want)

3. Respect personal space   ( I have my space, you have your space)

4. Getting a grown-ups attention appropriately (When I want the teacher's attention, I raise my hand)

5. Making Good independent choices  ( I have my own brain, I can make my own choices)

6. Paying Attention ( Where the eyes go, the brain follows)

7.Compassion   ( When we do the right thing, we have happy heart)

8. Honesty ( Always tell the truth, no whoppers)

9)  Using kind words ( Just because we think it doesn't mean we say it)

10) Learning from Mistakes ( The more we practice, the better we get)

Once we finish the first 10 lessons, these are the next 10 chameleons with Juan Pablos friend, Jax
once they are underlined, it means your child knows it.


1)
We treat others the way you want to be treated.
2) Our differences make us special.
3) My brain controls my body.
4)
We can break bad habits and build good ones.
5) We are all citizens, we take care of our community.
6) Good choices bring out my best self.
7) Our behavior sends a message.
8) I use my time wisely and do my work precisely.
9) Every person is gifted. Every person has challenges.
10) I can exercise my brain. I can exercise my body.
