Fairness

This month's character trait is FAIRNESS. I'm linking up with Maria. I love this lesson on fairness. Usually kids believe the definition of "fair" is everyone gets the same amount or same treatment. I try to teach my students that "fair" isn't always what it seems. "Fair" means getting what you need. Each child has different needs. It is my job to meet each of their needs. My students know they are to never say "That's not Fair!" At the beginning of the year I used the Band-Aid lesson on fairness and differentiation. I found this darling idea on Saylor's Log. Check out the entire lesson here! This lesson is great to share with your students and it really hits home! All students realize that each child is different and unique.
