David Shannon, we read your wonderful book about the importance of being oneself. Then, each kid got a cup of vanilla pudding to color. We layered the pudding in the class bowl and shared the rainbow treat. The collaboration was wonderful...and it took a lot of hand washing before, during and after!
What if Everybody Did That? by Ellen Javernick This one should come standard with every primary classroom. The book goes through a day with a little one who does things without thinking, like feeding zoo animals despite the warning signs not to. He's got that same feeling that lots of kids do - that their actions won't make that big of a difference. But the community helpers in this book get him to think of what would happen if everybody did that.
Using the children's book "If Everybody Did" we talked about the power of our actions. Great conversation about influence and consequence. Drawing activity after reading the book. #parenting #kindness #kidlit
