Hi Everyone,

The third school term is almost completed , and it has been a busy term, especially with New Zealand being in the international limelight as the host of the world cup. It is during this time we encourage children to be good ambassadors. Whilst we want our team to win, to encourage and support sportsmanship, good football and the resulting celebration. We can support this by being good role models ourselves.

Innovation in Education

Focus: One Minute Praisings
Part of the Kidz Inc philosophy when working with children is to try to catch them doing something right. We give crystal-clear feedback and tell them precisely what was right.
The habit we want to encourage is for them to catch themselves doing things right. Children who feel good about themselves produce good behaviour.

We tell children right from the start that we are going to let them know how they are doing. We praise children immediately. We tell children how good we feel about what they did right, and how it helps the holiday programme and the other children who come here. We pause for a moment of silence to let them ‘feel’ how good we feel and then encourage them to do more of the same.

By being specific and to the point these short interactions really foster positive behaviour which makes Kidz Inc a culture of fun activities together.

The Last Laugh

Doggone Brilliant

A wealthy man decided to go on a safari in Africa. He took his faithful pet dachshund along for company. One day, the dachshund starts chasing butterflies and before long the dachshund discovers that he is lost.

So, wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the obvious intention of having him for lunch. The dachshund thinks, "OK, I'm in deep trouble now!" Then he noticed some bones on the ground close by, and immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap, the dachshund exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious leopard. I wonder if there are any more around here." Hearing this, the leopard halts his attack in mid-stride, as a look of terror comes over him, and slinks away into the trees.

"Whew," says the leopard. "That was close. That dachshund nearly had me." Meanwhile, a monkey, who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So, off he goes.

But the dachshund saw him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figured that something must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard. The leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine.

"Now the dachshund sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back, and thinks, "What am I going to do now?" But instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet ... and, just when they get close enough to hear, the dachshund says..................

"Where's that darn monkey? Sent him off half an hour ago to bring me another leopard."
