The titles of the books were chosen with a specific social-emotional connection in mind. "The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes" is a book that tells students that it is O.K to make mistakes and laugh at yourself and that everything will be fine. A person does not always have to be perfect and this book is a great example of a Growth Mindset that young students need to develop. "The Invisible Boy" is about a boy that no one ever chooses to play with or sit with at lunch time just because he is different. One day a new student actually notices him and wants to play with him and they become friends making him feel happy. After reading stories like these, it will help my students understand empathy. I will let all the students share what they are feeling after reading these books. We will create charts and keep them in the classroom so they can refer to them all year whenever they feel a certain way. Many students experience these feelings coming into Kindergarten. After reading and discussing these books, they will be put in the colorful bins and the bins put into the Birch bookshelf for students to revisit, even if they may not be able to read all the words yet. "No need to cry..let's read a book!" This is the feeling that I want my students to have when entering my classroom and throughout the school year. The best way to discuss feelings and disagreements between students is through song and stories!
