Amelia's Red Carpet Award

Megan, Nathaniel and I went to school on Wednesday afternoon to see Amelia receive a Red Carpet Award.  Her teacher nominated her for this award for demonstrating the school's CARES values - Compassion, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy and Self-control. 

For those who don't want to watch the video, the announcer said, "Amelia Johnson consistently shows responsibility by being ready to learn, making good choices, respecting others, and putting forth her best effort.  Well done, Amelia!"

She was very proud of herself for receiving this award, but she told me that she wasn't really surprised, because she knew she was always very well behaved.

These are the same values that students receive Hootie notices for.  On the way home, Amelia mentioned that she had received Hootie notices for all those values except for Assertion.  We talked about things she could do to show assertion, but I couldn't come up with many ideas for a 5 year old.  Any thoughts from you teachers out there?
