What an Great Second Week!!!
We love the spirit and energy that our students bring. We are having so much fun that 2 weeks flew by already! I asked some students about what they love about Las Positas.
Thank you for joining us at the BTSN and if you weren't able to make it, please reach out to your teachers and stay connected.
We continue to celebrate the IB learner attribute of being principled. Please listen to the story below and have a discussion about the moral of the story. There are discussion questions listed below to help. Remember, the time you spend with your child is the best gift you can give to them.
Catch your child doing something "principled" and tweet it out @laspositaslions or send them for me to share.
Have a great weekend~
Lesson from the Story & Discussion Questions after Reading
'Hey, Little Ant' by Phillip and Hannah Hosse can help students see the world through the eyes of an ant. Learning to understand others’ perspectives supports the development of empathy in children. This story is a dialogue between a boy and an ant. The boy tries to decide if he should squish the ant, and the ant makes a compelling case for his survival. The ending asks the reader to decide the outcome: "What do you think the kid should do? This makes for a perfect opportunity to discuss the ethical treatment of living creatures and opens discussions for being principled.
1) How do you think the Ant feels about the boy from the book?
2) Explain how the boy feels about the Ant.
3) Explain why the Ant feels that his own life does matter.
4) Which point of view do you agree with and why?
5) Explain your thinking on what the boy should do at the end of the story.
6) If you were the boy, what would you do at the end? Would you squish the ant? Or would you let the ant go free? And why?
