WHAT IS RESPONSIBILITY?

Responsibility is the ability to act INDEPENDENTLY and make decisions. It is to accept ACCOUNTABILITY for our actions. When we are responsible, we know what is expected of us. If we make a mistake, we are not afraid to own up to it and try to fix the problem.

Ask Your Students:

  1. What does responsibility mean to you?
  2. How do you act responsibly?
  3. Why is it so important to be responsible?
  4. How can you be responsible in our class?

Dear parents and/or guardians…

RESPONSIBILITY

This month we are learning about responsibility and why it is such an important skill to develop and use. In our class, responsibility is a big deal. We hold each of our students responsible for their actions and decisions. We want our students to know and accept their responsibilities. Our students should not only be responsible in our class, but in everything they do.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

  • Hold your kids responsible for doing their chores. Let them know of the consequences of not getting them done.
  • Next time you make a mistake (as we all do) quickly own up to it in front of your child and discuss possible solutions
  • Set a good example. Make sure you are living up to your responsibilities. We are the best role models for our children.

 

RESPONSIBILITY IS THE ABILITY TO ACT INDEPENDENTLY AND MAKE DECISIONS. WHEN WE ARE RESPONSIBLE, WE KNOW WHAT IS EXPECTED OF US. IF WE MAKE A MISTAKE, WE ARE NOT AFRAID TO OWN UP TO IT AND TRY TO FIX THE PROBLEM. EACH OF US IS EXPECTED TO LIVE UP TO OUR RESPONSIBILITIES AND HOLD OURSELVES ACCOUNTABLE FOR OUR ACTIONS AND DECISIONS.
