Our class was lucky to receive the gift of Salina Yoon's new book "Be a Friend". Salina is a wonderful children's author and parent of SEES students. We will be celebrating and sharing friendship the week of Feb. 8-12th. In conjunction with Valentine's week, we will focus on ways we can "Be a Friend". Check out the trailer for the book below.

Chapter 3: The Power of "Yet"

In Episode 3, “The Power of Yet,” Katie realizes she can learn new things, too, and that she can ask others for help!

  1. What should you do if you are stuck on a project, math problem, or other learning
  2. Think of a time you were afraid to ask for help. Why did you feel afraid?
  3. Why is the word "yet" so powerful? Think of a "yet" moment in your life and discuss it!
