Kids Make a Difference. Stories to share
John F Kennedy quote
Citizenship is doing your part to make your school and community a better place to live. Good citizens help to protect the environment, cooperate with others, obey laws and rules, respect authority, volunteer. 


The Challenge Activity: Two options...
First, show your kids this video about Campbell, the nine-year-old kid who personally makes each teddy bear for sick kids in hospitals. NOTE: The video is about 8 minutes long. Pre-K-3rd teachers, consider stopping the video at 3:33. It's a good ending point for all grades, but especially the primary grades. CLICK HERE for the VIDEO 
Option 1) School Yard Clean-up Challenge!  
Spend ten minutes as a class picking up trash around Greenbrook by the end of September. 
OPTION 2) Restorative Circle Discussion: Are You a Good Citizen at School? 
Here are some suggested questions to guide your discussion about what being a good citizen looks like. Have students provide examples from their own life. Please feel free to add your own questions and modify the activity that best fits the needs of your students. 
  • How do you always follow the rules? 
  • How do you respect your teacher(s)? 
  • Do you volunteer for jobs in the classroom? Give an example. 
  • How do you respect your principal's rules? 
  • Do you participate in a school volunteer group, such as valet? Please explain. 
  • How do you act respectfully in the MPR during lunch? 
  • Do you always put your trash in the proper bin (landfill, composting, recycling)? Give an example of what goes in each bin. 
  • Do you return your library books on time? 
  • How do you respect the librarian and the established rules? 
  • How do you work and/or play respectfully with all your classmates? 
  • Do you your nightly reading and/or your homework? 
  • How should you treat the yard duty volunteers?
  • How do you follow the school safety drills (fire, earthquake, etc.)? 
  • Give examples of how you follow the SOAR lifestyle because by doing so you are being a good citizen. 
After having a class discussion, have students list one way they can be a good citizen at school on a post-it/chart paper to display in the classroom throughout the month of September.
