Clip to ScrapBook #4

Read Because Amelia Smiled. Then, have a short discussion about “paying it forward”.

Tell them, when they go to recess, consciously don’t something kind. And watch the ripple.

After recess, try this writing assignment:

“Because I helped Jose find the ball, he played with me. Because I played with Jose, ....”

Or
“because Mrs. Jones, the yard duty lady said hello to me, I said hello to Samantha. Then Samantha said hello to George and asked him to play with us. Because George played with us, he shared his snack.”

For younger grades it takes some examples, but you’d be surprised what they really do notice.
