February’s Table

IMG_3942

Our poem this month is Robert Frost’s Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening – a favorite of our daughter’s thanks to The Poetry Foundation’s The Poetry Show.  Our piece of art is Sky Above Clouds IV by Georgia O’Keefe.  Our habit of character this month is demonstrating a readiness to listen & act.  We say, “I can obey right away!”  To teach this habit we “practice happy” which means creating mini, playful opportunities to practice this skill (think Simon Says).  We are also trying to highlight the natural consequences of obeying right away.  This sounds like, “You obeyed right away when I said it was time to come inside!  I know I can let you play in the snow next time because I can trust you to listen!”

What did February bring to your table?
