​​​2016-2017 Making Better Choices

​In an effort to teach life skills, behavior management is a major part of our program.  The Brilliant Brown Beauties were asked to think of a time that they made the wrong choice, & reenact it with the correct choice.  The scripts, props and themes were all created by the Beauties.  They worked hard on their projects and have a better understanding of the importance of making wise choices.  The Beauties were eager to create and act out their skits!  We hope you enjoy!

We are teaching them that you have to know the characteristics of a Queen to wear your crown proudly.  The Beauties are creating Canvas Bags with one side dedicated to their African Queen and the other side dedicated to their personal character traits.  They did the research and created masterpieces from the information they learned!  The Beauties were proud of their bags!
