Today I'm linking up with Maria at Be the Difference to share a way that I teach respect in my classroom.
On Earth Day we talked about not only respect for each other, but also respect for our environment.
This is a great book to talk about how a character evolves throughout the story. Walter develops respect for his environment and his friend who planted the tree.
I typed up a few short response questions that I used with my students after discussing the book during our Socratic Circle. Enjoy!
