A Lesson in Giving

When my youngest son was in first grade I did a presentation of the Shel Silverstein book, The Giving Tree. So that the students could better see the progression of the story I photocopied all the pages, and as I read a page, I put it up on the blackboard in order. When I was done reading we talked about the story, how we could give to others, and what one thing they could do to help someone. They then drew a picture of it and as they completed it they brought it up to the teacher and myself and we helped them to write a sentence describing what their picture showed. They took the pictures home and I donated the book to the class library.
