Practice, used in the form of a verb is an action word meaning, "I have to do the work repeatedly in order to get the results I want." Critical thinking is understanding the “how and why” of the work that is required. When our children can explain the “how and why”, of their work, that’s progress. Daily practice builds confidence and self-esteem. It also empowers our children to present the very best of who they are. In a nutshell, practice is like brain-food, "the more I practice, practice, practice, the better I become, the better I become". It feeds the mind, body, and soul.
At Practice U, we believe when our children are taught morals, values, and principles at home, school, church, and other groups, they develop a greater awareness of the social norms or codes of conduct in our society. At Practice U we call morals, values, and principles that high M.V.P. credibility that guides our mouth, behavior and decision-making. Earning that high M.V.P. credibility is a great asset to a parent and child's reputation in sports, performing and visual arts and other activities our kids get involved in. Such teachings guides our children’s conscious and mentors them into doing what is right, fair, and respectable, especially when tested or tempted. That’s how one becomes a great Prac-ti-co-lo-gist passing down the legacy of the Practice U brand.
At Practice U, we want kids, teens, and young adults ages 18-30, as well as our seasoned adults and seniors in America and beyond, to practice presenting the very best of who they are. We believe health, fitness, and nutrition is another important part of us presenting the best version of ourselves. When we practice eating the right types of food, we empower our body to work for us. Think of clean nutrition as medicine for the body. In the long run it’s cheaper than paying for expensive medication monthly, at the pharmacy. Allow that thought to be the motivation to eat clean and keep moving towards self-improvement.
In the summer of 2008, Mr. Troy Smith founded the concept of Practice U as a result of writing an affirmation/poem to inspire his 5th grade students in the 20th year of his 26 years of teaching at "RADIANT" John Ritter Elementary school in Watts, California. The affirmation was simply titled, “The More I Practice, Practice, Practice”, (#Tmippp). The inspirational hook is what led the students in grades 2, 3, 4, and 5 to increase their California Standardized Test scores annually from 2009-2013. However it was the 5th grade students that raised their scores 5 years in a row exponentially that led to the birth of the Practice U brand.
