Consider others better than yourself

This week the heroes learned life skills that would enable them to care for others. After learning about the five food groups, they were ready to make their own lunches with PB&J sandwiches. The next day, many heroes said they packed their own lunches and did not need mom or dad to make their PB&J sandwiches for them. They also had a blast trying different fruit smoothies recipes that they created together on their own. But when they finished all the fruits, they were content with making the last batch of a mix of vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice cream shake. One of the heroes was so proud to share his special blueberry muffin recipe and brought all the ingredients for his friends to help him bake at school. The heroes also felt very confident when they tried sewing by hand and a sewing machine. One hero even patched up a hole she found on Ms. Elsie’s cardigan! Learning these life skills increased each hero’s confidence in his/her abilities. Many heroes proudly shared with their families all that they were able to do on their own. They were even more eager to be able to do things for others and not just for themselves.
