Good Habits, Not So Nice Habits

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Miss pat and good habitsMiss Pat was so pleased about the success of the pop quiz that she came up with another quiz about good habits.

As she handed out the quiz she said, “I am handing out a quiz about good habits. In the left column there is a list of not so nice habits and in the right column  there is a list of good habits. Draw a line between the not so nice habit to the nice habit it the right column. Anyone who gets 10 or more answers correct will win a Halloween coloring book. I just got a shipment of brand new coloring books in yesterday “

The thought of winning a new coloring book, especially one for Halloween caught everyone’s attention.

Eulyn raised her hand and when Miss Pat called on her she asked,”Miss Pat what are habits?”

Miss Pat smiled and said, “Good question. Can anyone tell Eulyn what a habit is?” Arthur J raised his hand and said, “I think it is something you do so often that sometimes you don’t even know your doing it, like drumming on the table with your fingers, or picking your nose.”

Miss Pat answered, “Good explanation, Arthur J. I will just add that some habits are good habits that we need to keep, like brushing our teeth after meals and before bedtime and other habits are not so good like picking our noses and we need to change those habits.”

Why don’t you see how you do in taking the habits quiz along with the “Can Dos”.  Ask a parent or other adult to check your answers.

Good luck on making good choices!
