The fourth letter in spelling character is “R” and stands for “Respect.” This is a very important word you will hear about often in school and life for many years. It can be used as both a verb and a noun and one definition is showing consideration and thoughtfulness to others and their property. One way to do this is not to take your classmates supplies without first asking their permission. You can also respect yourself by keeping your body healthy with proper diet and exercise and always doing your best at whatever you do.
