When I first began my character development series, I had not started doing the “I Will” statements yet. Today, I will add in some “I Will” statements for respect since our fifth week of the year is a focus on “respect.” We made this cute board to highlight the focus phrases. I got the idea for “I Will” Statements from “Character First,” a character based curriculum. Although I haven’t used a lot of their content, I wanted to give them credit for this idea. Our four phrases this week are:
1. I will honor my father and mother.
2. I will wait my turn to speak (this has come with a few of our character development because it not only fits but still needs some improvement in our world).
3. I will have manners.
4. I will obey right away.
This main concept was used, with permission, from the Character First Education Curriculum.
