During the month of May we have introduced the character trait of Flexibility. People who exhibit flexibility often display optimism, patience, open-mindedness and a willing to compromise. Students who are flexible are able to see more than one way to solve a problem. A few teachers shared a skit at all school assembly to introduce this new character trait. We connected flexibility to one of our favorite storybook characters, “Pete The Cat.” As many of the children that read Pete the Cat books know, he never gets upset. Would Pete get upset, “goodness no!”- he is always flexible and goes with the flow as he sings his songs.
