"Everything I needed to know in life I learned in preschool!!!"

--Life Skill #1--   When I call your name, stop, look at me and say "yes"" (acknowledge people)
--Life Skill #2--   When I give you an instruction, do it right away...
(Teachers love this one, spouses not so much)

--Life Skill #3--   When I give instructions do them right away...
(Same as above, multi-level.)

--Life Skill #4--   When something is too hard, find a teacher and say, "Help me please."  (We all need help one time or another)

--Life Skill #5--   When you want something from a teacher or friend and they are busy, say "Excuse me", to get their attention.
(Good manners work all the time)

--Life Skill #6--   When someone is in your way, or has something you want, say "Excuse me may I have that when you are done??"
(Wait for your turn, time)

--Life Skill #7--   When an adult/child tells you to wait, say, "okay" and your waiting words..."When I wait quietly I get what I want."
(Patience is a virtue)

--Life Skill #8--    When someone gives you something, look at them and say "Thank You". 
(Acknowledge kindness)

--Life Skill #9--   When someone new comes to the area where you are playing, say "Hello", or something else that is nice.
(We all want to be part of something)

--Life Skill #10--  When you see someone that does not have any toys, share some toys with them.
(Share ideas, kindness, yourself,......etc.)

--Life Skill #11--  When someone looks hurt or upset, ask the question, "Are you ok??"
(Empathy, compassion)

Just a few words for the blog...........Happy September Everyone!....Liz
