Expectation Week 1: What does it mean to have expectations of others and myself?

Throughout our abundant lives, we can find simple and quick ways to connect our learning and growth at church to our lives at home. 

Enjoy this month’s Spotify Playlist!

At Church: 

We talked about expectations in our church and classroom- of others and ourselves.

Morning Time:

Share this quote: “Expectations play an important role in our lives. They can shape our beliefs- consciously and unconsciously- about ourselves, others and how the world works.”

Drive Time:

Listen to Miss Rumphius

Meal Time: 

Discuss these questions:

What are my expectations of school (home, public, private)?

What are my expectations of family?

Bed Time:

Picture Book: The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson

How do you face new experiences and the expectations of those experiences? 

Book of Poems: Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson

Family Time:

Consider our UU principles or your religious education class covenant.  Are there “expectations” your family affirms and everyone agrees upon? Discuss what they are? Write them down and add to the list this week when you think of more.
