I’m an old goat now,
But just like you,
I was once a young goat too.
Listen to my story,
Of the “baaad” things I did,
Learn a lesson from them
DON’T BE THAT KID!
So begins a delightful story of what might be a typical day at school. Typical? Not quite! Each scene unfolds as our KID misbehaves on the bus, in class, in art, in music, in gym, at recess. Even at lunch! Does he learn his lesson? You have to read the book to find out!
We can learn great life lessons from reading Don’t Be That KID! At School. Each scene provides an opportunity to discuss character building values, such as honesty, kindness, consideration, responsibility, respect, including others, solving problems, making good choices, completing tasks, and being positive.
The Don’t Be That KID! At School Resource Guide accompanies the book but can be used independently. It is filled with meaningful activities for children in grades K – 5 for teachers and parents to use that reinforce proper behavior and character education principles.
