Caring

Caring is to feel and show concern for others. It is to be unselfish and to show that you are concerned for and want to help others in good times and bad times.

      • You can show it with your words
      • The things you do for them
      • Even in your gestures or body language
      • Today talk with your teacher about how you can show caring in your classroom for the next two weeks.
