The Golden Rule

Do-Unto-Otters-by-Laurie-KellerThis week, the Kindergarten class read the book “Do Unto Otters” and learned about the golden rule.

The book is about  Mr. Rabbit and his new neighbors.  The new neighbors are otters, and Mr. Rabbit is worried that his new neighbors will not be nice to him.

Mr. Owl tells Mr. Rabbit that he knew an old saying:  “Do unto Otters as you would have otters do unto you.”  That got Mr. Rabbit thinking about all the ways that he would like the otters to treat him.

Once the class learned about the golden rule, they could not stop quoting it.   They have begun to really pay attention to how they are treating others.  I love that!
