My name is __________ and I go to the Capuano School.
I like to play with my friends at school.
I like to learn at school.
I can do my best work when I am ready to learn. I am “Green for Go” when I am ready to learn.
Green for Go means my eyes are watching
and my ears are listening
and my body is calm
and my words are kind.
Sometimes, I forget how to be Green for Go. Sometimes, I make a mistake.
A mistake can hurt bodies or feelings. Hitting my friends is a mistake. Using unkind words is a mistake. Taking toys from a friend is a mistake.
But you know what? Mistakes are like the color yellow.
I can turn the color yellow into green! I can fix my mistakes and be Green for Go again!
If I add blue to yellow, it turns green!
I can fix my mistakes! When I fix my mistake, I add blue to yellow and I am Green for Go again!
I can fix my mistake by saying, “I am sorry.”
I can fix my mistake by sharing a toy.
I can fix my mistake by helping a friend.
I can fix my mistake by remembering to keep
my eyes watching
and my ears listening
and my body calm
and my words kind
I am Green for Go!
