Day 154 - May Social Skills Lesson Teaching about Tolerance and Accepting Difference - Memorial School Guidance

This post originally appeared on the Memorial School Guidance Blog

This month we will be teaching students about tolerance and accepting differences. Students will be reading a story and watching a video clip on why it is important to be tolerant towards others. We will also be presenting problem solving strategies to use when a child is not feeling accepted.  We will be discussing how each individual is unique in their own way and when put together in their classroom community they are like a box of crayons. 

Giraffes Can't Dance 
by Giles Andreae

This story is about a giraffe being different and not being able to dance, but with a little encouragement from his jungle friends, he is able to dance to his own tune. 

Video clip about tolerance:

Students will draw a self portrait on their crayon and have the option to share something that makes them unique.
