Guidance Lessons for December

This month we will be focusing on our character word: Generosity. The first lesson of the month we will be focusing on being "Bucket Fillers." The students will listen to the story, "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" written by Carol McCloud. The story teaches children to express kindness, appreciation, and love on a daily basis. If we do this, we will make our school a better place to be. The students will be completing exercises that focus on ways we can fill others buckets after the story.

Our second lesson for the month will be a favorite of Mrs. Spear's. We will be reading "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." I personally love this story because it teaches the students that Christmas and the holidays aren't about presents, but about something more.

Character Word of the Month: Generosity

This month our character word is generosity. Generosity is about giving to others without expecting anything in return. We will be focusing on this word through our two guidance lessons this month and through our school-wide random acts of kindness project. Read below to learn more about our Grinchy Project!
