Nice to see a music video for kids about accepting our differences & building compassion. Pinned by my student Diana Fitzpatrick: "Don't Laugh at Me" - a beautiful, teachable moment about bullying and accepting the differences of others.
Have the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stamp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it. Unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty is was. She then told them to tell it they’re sorry.
Holy cow, 271 pages of Post-it activities for teachers. This might be a pin now, read later. This is a cheap, easy way to get students up and moving while still learning and it gets them thinking of different types of questions to ask. Love post-its!
