From the Principal
This month we are focusing on Habit 5: Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood.
Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood means I will listen to other people’s ideas and feelings. I will try to see things from their viewpoint (paradigm). I will listen to others without interrupting. I will listen with my ears, my eyes, and my heart. I am confident in voicing my ideas.
Expect your child to use words and phrases like listening first, listening with your ears, eyes, and heart, and seeking first to understand in their conversations this week. You can encourage your child by using some of this language at home. You may have an opportunity to share your feelings with your child
