- Discuss the three ways that Odakotah mentions about being kind to people, animals, and the environment.
- Conclude by discussing kind ways to treat Odakotah in the classroom. (This is a good time to mention where he will be located in the
classroom and respectful handling rules).
Note: On the back of the booklet about Odakotah is a quote about kindness: “When everything’s blustery and you’re feeling flustery, remember you have friends who care.” - Winnie the Pooh. Discuss at another community meeting. You can even post it in your classroom!
