We will read The Giving Tree and be discussing how to be kind, the importance of being kind and creating our own version of “the giving tree.” The children may come home talking about “caring chains.” A caring chain will be hanging on our classroom and the children will be earning links to add to the chain when acts of kindness are recognized by a teacher.
