-Raise your hand if you have ever had a cold freezy pop.
-I am going to tell you a story about freezy popsI worked at a day care, and I was a part of a team. We all had different responsibilities as
members of the team that took care of the children. One day I was supposed to put the snack in the freezer the night before so that the
students would have a nice cold treat the next day when they came in from recess, this was the freezy pops, and I forgot. The next day when
we came to work and went outside, the teachers asked me to go get the freezy pops from the freezer. That is when I realized that I had
forgotten. Due to my mistake the kids didnt have a nice cold freezy pop for snack when they came inside! It is so important to be an
effective team member so that people can rely on you when you have a responsibility.
