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

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)

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.
