Strictly No Elephants is the perfect book to work on developing self esteem and teaching kindness and caring. The feature text is used to focus on message and character traits. Many other strategies are included as well such as cause and effect, retelling, sequencing, writing, text connections and more. Students will learn all about how important it is to feel included, accepted and not judged. There is a sweet elephant craft as well as a tree house craft. I have included brief lesson suggestions and some bonus word work and math activities too. There are colorful posters you can display to go along with the story. Build awareness, teach friendship, sharing, and kindness with this fun and educational unit.
