Good Friends Listen to Each Other

We just finished our first round of I-Care-Cat lessons with our Kindergarteners and First Graders.  We talked about listening to each other with our "ears" (big, big ears), "eyes"(looking at the speaker), "month" (not interrupting), and whole bodies (neat feet and quiet hands when on the rug in the library).  We read the book "The Listening Walk" by Paul Showers, closed our eyes and listened to all the interesting sounds around us.  The most memorable comment....

Me: "So....what part of our bodies do we use to listen to each other?"
Student: [with much enthusiasm] "With our hearts!"
