We are starting out with another good book: "The Dog Who Cried 'Woof!'"
You could also watch this cute story, The Dog Who Cried Wolf:
(I asked the students to guess what they thought our topic today was going to be before hand, but you could have them read the book and guess at the end).
I used these cool FREE self assessment fans as a great informal assessment along the way.
Next we had a short discussion about honesty and what it meant to be honest and dishonest.
Next we watched the video/ story "Tell the Truth B B Wolf" on Vimeo- https://vimeo.com/117880122
At the end I used these adorable and FREE partner cards by Speckled Moose Counseling to have the students pair up and share a time they had been honest or told a lie.
To end our lesson I created this cut/paste honesty sort. It was a great way for them to create a definition of honesty and decide if the two scenarios were honest or dishonest.

Next we used a beach ball to pass around the class and share different ideas how we show people we care about them at school, then at home, and then in the community.
