Today, Mrs. Weller and Ms. Goodman performed a puppet show for the class. The skit focused on hitting and biting. The children were able to see how the puppets were acting to one another. After the skit was over the teachers had a conversation with the class. Mrs. Weller asked, "What could have Raphael said or done instead of biting Tatiana?" The children said he could have asked her to play. By doing this, the teachers were able to address an issue happening in the school. Afterwards, a short discussion took place on using nice words and letting someone know how you are feeling.
