For this book students will be creating "Caring Books", each student will write down words of encouragement that they've either heard from their parents, grandparents, other family members, and even friends. We will then as a class read them and decide how they could apply in our classroom. Each one will be placed in a book and, when it is needed, will be pulled out as a reference if students ever need some encouragement or need a reminder of how to encourage others.
