Wonder, Mr. Brown’s First Precept: Choose Kind

Bowling Green is starting a movement in November to encourage our students to be kind. In our classroom, we have been reading the book Wonder by RJ Palcio since the beginning of the year. In this book, kindness is a huge theme. We read it to remind ourselves how to treat others and to work as a team. Throughout the book, August’s teacher Mr. Brown has a series of precepts (Ask your student what this word means!). So far we have read the first, listed below. Everyday will be talking about how we can implement this precept in our daily lives and I encourage you to continue the conversation at home too. Be on the lookout for Mr. Brown’s next precept!
