Character C.A.R.E. Lessons
The week of November 26-30 during C.A.R.E. time we discussed, “What is a friend?", with the Kinder and First grade students.
Our lesson began with this video;
There was a fantastic amount of discussion with 1st grade classes, which really seemed to bring the friendship concepts to reality for many of the students. The continuous thread seemed to be that when we help those around us and show our friendship to others we are all happy, both the giver and receiver.
The students in Kinder were able to think about times when others were helpful to them, which was important because it took their eyes off of themselves. Many aha moments as they then began to understand how happy it made them and in turn wanted to do the same for others.
Below are pictures that were used in a booklet to help them have a visual of; what a friend is.
Encourage continued discussion at home to help build a group of students that respect each other, show kindness, empathy, and amazing character.

Thank you for allowing me to help your children gain a character trait that will assist them their whole life.
