This week, all classes (except Kindergarten) will be reading a book called What If Everybody Did That? by Ellen Javernick. It is a fun book that shows what can happen if people break the rules, especially if you think that it won’t hurt if it’s only you. Scenarios include what if everybody splashed “a little” in the neighbourhood pool – there would be no water left! Also, what if everybody threw “just one” soda can out the window – we would have an environmental disaster with pop cans everywhere! The main message in the story is that there are consequences to thoughtless behaviors.
The Kindergarteners will be reading Pete the Cat by Eric Litwin. This is a humorous story about colours and not getting upset when something goes wrong. There is also a song that goes with the book at HarperCollins Children’s books.
