Small Group Highlight:
Each week it is our hope to engage your child in group activities that are fun, engaging, and also reinforce the bottom line. During the second week of our series, “Operating System” our bottom line will be, “Choose your words carefully.” One of the group activities that will reinforce this bottom line is called, “What’s Done is Done.” The students in the group will have to squeeze all of the toothpaste out of the tube and then attempt to put it all back in. They will see pretty quickly that it’s next to impossible! Their leader will explain that it was pretty easy to empty the tube but it was not as easy to put it back in. It’s just like the words we say. It can be easy to spew out a bunch of not-so-nice words, especially when we are angry or upset, but once we have said something, can’t take it back. We all need to choose our words carefully.
