Grade 5 Starter

Activity Time!

Draw your own safe house like the one in the video. We are focusing on the foundation of the house. The base of safety. When you or someone you know (e.g., in your family) act in a positive way towards another person or people, draw a brick within the base of safety. Make sure you talk to people about building the base so everyone knows what you are trying to build. 

Even at the young age of six months, babies prefer to look at kind faces more than mean faces. Our brains prefer to see the positive.
