Teaching our children to be the type of people that notice the lone child sitting on the bench with no one else to play with is no easy task. While awareness like that takes time to develop in all children, what we can help with is working on teaching our children about how being excluded and being included feels like. We must teach children how to include others and why inclusion is important not just from a systemic view but from a 5-year-old view. It feels good to be part of the group. I feel confident and ready to learn and play when I am part of the group.
I LOVE this this lesson! Thank you so much for sharing. I think that I will "steal" it from you to use with my own class. I especially loved the visual involving shaking the can of soda and the bottle of water to represent the two ractions. I think that that will definitely hit home with the kids.
Book recommendations by Susan Hall can help you build an age appropriate child's library or book list using the best's children's literature. The more than children's books on this site are recommended only after having been carefully screened and evaluated by the Authors of Straight Talk About Reading. In writing Straight Talk About Reading , the authors screened books for quality, content, type size, artwork, etc. Each child progresses through higher and higher Lexile Scores as she develops greater reading skill. If a book's Lexile Score is too high, it will be frustrating, too low and it will be boring. Some experimentation by the parent will be needed to find the right starting point for each child, but even then, the Lexile Score is a guide.
