Disappointed Ninja Worksheet and Activity Bundle
Is your child a sore loser? Does he or she scream or get angry when losing?
Disappointment is a natural emotion and while it never feels good, it's not an emotion to avoid. Children with no experience solving life’s little setbacks have a much harder time when they’re faced with the big ones. When we teach our children to see stumbling blocks as opportunities to improve and grow, we increase their mental toughness.
Good sportsmanship is one of the life lessons that children can learn while young.
In this story, Disappointed Ninja becomes disappointed and learns how to display good sportsmanship skills:
If you lose, don't quit or make up excuses.
Learn from mistakes and try again.
Always give your best.
If someone else makes a mistake, remain encouraging and avoid criticizing.
Show respect for yourself, your team, and the opponent.
This worksheet and activity bundle is the companion lesson to the Disappointed Ninja book. This engaging and educational eight page booklet will encourage children to develop good sportsmanship skills. This booklet includes:
