Yesterday morning we had special visitors during our Morning Meeting. Maya’s mom and dad, Mr. and Mrs. Advani joined us to share information about our classmate Maya. They read the story, A Bad Case of the Stripes, an engaging book that explores the risks of trying to be like everyone else and learning to respect and accept differences in others.
The book helped spark a discussion around this very topic. Mrs. Advani shared that we all have things that make us different and unique, ranging from singing talents to being funny. She shared that just like all children, Maya has things that make her unique, and that one of the great things about Maya is that she’s herself, not matter what. Mr. and Mrs. Advani did a wonderful job of sharing ways that we can be a good friend to Maya in our classroom and school community.
Thank you to both Mr. and Mrs. Advani for sharing in our Morning Meeting.
