We participate in No Excuses University, and our class is College Bound! Every morning we start our day with the Eagles chant. Our school is also heavily focused on the arts and is an Academy of Creative Expression.
My students are busily preparing for middle school, and I want them to have everything they need to be successful.
They enjoy being positive role-models for the younger students on campus. Our school serves a very diverse population, and the majority of the students are from low-income families. They always arrive eager to learn, full of curiosity, and with a desire to showcase their knowledge in new, creative ways.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Love thy neighbor. Treat others as you would want them to treat you. The Golden Rule can be stated in many different ways. No matter how often it is repeated, students still need reminders to follow this very important adage.
This book, Kid President's Guide to Bring Awesome, contains an important message about friendship, tolerance and celebrating the differences in others.
Kid President, a popular YouTube personality, espouses the importance of treating others kindly, setting goals for yourself, improving the world, and being awesome. My students will benefit from reading and discussing this book by reinforcing the vital topic of kindness in all its' forms.
By providing these books, you will enable my students to read about kindness, self acceptance and making the world a better place. This will give them an opportunity to discuss what they read and forge a connection with each other as well as the material.
