Do Unto Otters - Treating Others the Way We Want to be Treated

In light of everything that has been happening in our country, it's more important than ever that we are teaching our students (and personal kiddos!) to stand up for what it right.

Books can be a powerful way of communicating important truths with your students. Here is one book I LOVE that teaches a lifelong lesson.
Do Unto Otters by Laurie Keller is a fantastic story that drives home the idea that we need to treat others the way we want to be treated: with kindness, respect, and understanding. Set the tone for the year and help encourage a positive classroom community with this fantastic book. 
DEAL ALERT!!!! You can buy the book on Amazon for only $4.74 today!!! Click here to shop-->

To extend this story and continue the discussion with my students I have created this little booklet that your students can make to talk about and review the important character traits mentioned in the book:
It includes a poster for you to display in your classroom as well as the booklet pages to discuss 12 important character traits. There is also a page where your student can sign a commitment pledge to treat others the way they want to be treated.

Do you have any other book suggestions on this topic? I'd love to hear them! Leave a comment below :)

Also - if you use this book and/or student booklet in your classroom, I'd love to see pictures! E-mail me and I'll feature you on my blog! :)
