"The Bully Too Close to Home"

Beautiful snow floating softly outside, a second cup of coffee on Boxing Day, came across this blog post from Hands Free MAMA: The Bully Too Close to Home. It is beautifully written, please take the time to take a look~ Who among us wouldn't want to be able to say this about our child(ren)? "I was captivated by the utter joy on her[/his] face."

We Use Our Hands for Helping not Hurting

I-Care-Cat, the kindergarteners and first graders recently learned our second I-Care-Cat rule and talked about how to use our hand for helping and not hurting.  We read the book Andy and the Lions.  In the story Andy uses his hands to help the lion remove a thorn, to stop a crowd from hurting the lion, and to take his book back to the library.

Another good book on this topic is Hands Are Not for Hitting

I-Care Cat  hopes the students found a good place to hang their helping hands and caring hearts!
