I start my year off by reading the book,
Giraffes Can't Dance. It's a cute story that has some great lessons.
Then we make giraffe hand prints and hang them in the room. I keep these up all year to remind us that we all have different talents and there's no reason to tease others about what they can't do.
As part of our All About Me week I have the students draw self portraits with side walk chalk.
