I did it a little different.

Clip to ScrapBook #3

Each of my kids got a red heart. We read the story "Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon". Each time someone teased her they folded it (creased hard for hard words). Then, as the second part of the story came, we unfolded it for every nice thing someone realized about her. They tried to smooth out the creases. Then at the end we talked about how even though those nice things opened her heart back up, the damage is still done. When you say something mean, you can try to make it better but mean words hurts and "I'm sorry" makes it better but doesn't undo what has been done. Then they of course all had to share a mean thing that was said to them (using no names of who said it) and how even though that might be a friend, they all still remember those words. They LOVED it and really got it. You could do it with any teasing book but I just love that one!
