Children are working on earning their FAMILY patches for their uniforms. Think and talk about what you can do to help your family. Some ideas from our mat chat yesterday included: Listen the first time! Play nicely with cousins (even if they’re not your favorite). Help with cleaning and cooking. Visit relatives and actually talk with them – not just play on your phone. Say please and thank you.
To earn the badge, students can write us a short paragraph about what they worked on and how it helped!
If you are new to our academy, Merit Badges compliment our life skills education for children. It’s another innovative Learn to Earn character development system for our students in preschool through 6th grade. Like many of J.K. Lee Black Belt Academy’s programs, the merit badge program introduces and reinforces valuable life skills such as Focus, Discipline and Confidence in a manner that is age specific and fun! Merit Badges are much more than badges. They motivate your child with the incentive of earning through the life skills they learn. It builds their self-esteem and inspires them to always do their best!
Adult students don’t typically earn badges but we do take time to reflect on ways we can help and nurture our families. We encourage you to share ideas and suggestions!
All of our instructors and staff are thankful for all of our wonderful families! Your commitment and support help make teaching joyful!
