Beloved and award-winning grade-school teacher Ann Moehrle Scotland adds the K of kindness to the three Rs of reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic as she empowers her young students to nurture their dreams, express compassion, give thanks, and share their generosity of spirit. In Treasures of a Teacher's Heart, Scotland collects real-life stories from her twenty-two second graders who know first-hand that simple gifts from the heart can indeed make a difference.
Each child's essay is presented with Scotland's thoughtful introduction and motivating Life Lessons at the end-universal lessons about taking pride in accomplishment (performing magic tricks at a school talent show), acknowledging the support of family (counting on Dad to keep you upright as you attempt to ride a two-wheeler), celebrating heritage (examining Russian nesting dolls), mentoring others (modeling friendship for younger students), summoning faith and courage (healing from a tumor), and more. This uplifting book also includes Scotland's timeless rules for students, teachers, and parents as well as creative activities for helping kids foster their unique skills and talents as they embrace life with kindness and reap the inevitable rewards of peace, hope, and love.
One heart and two hands can change the world-one person at a time.
