This Virtual Professional Development session, led by Frieda B. author, Renata Bowers is based on the FBTWC Lesson Plan for the second book of the series, Frieda B. Meets the Man in the Moon. Bowers will delve into ELA and SEL objectives related to resolving conflict authentically. The session will cover engaging and creative methods for helping each child better understand and internalize:
* choices and actions that lead to conflict - intentional or not;
* choices and actions that lead to resolution (Golden Rule);
* how mistakes can be opportunities (failure is how we learn);
* why resolution is good, for everyone (we all long to belong).
Through her national-award-winning Frieda B. series of picture books, children's author Renata Bowers has developed an engaging method for utilizing written story to inspire the human story within every child... to help each child believe in self (autonomy) and to be part of something good (community), even in the midst of challenging chapters (resilience).
The Frieda B. The Whole Child (FBTWC) ELA/SEL Toolkit & author-led PD is built on this method and book series. FBTWC provides an array of story-based resources to PK-5 educators for sharing with students, staff and families the beauty of using STORIES to move toward meaningful, relevant academic and social success... all the while complementing and enhancing the school's existing English Language Arts (ELA) and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) standards and initiatives.
Frieda B. Meets the Man in the Moon Story Summary:
What do we do when we’ve done something wrong – even innocently so? This is the question explored in Frieda B. Meets the Man in the Moon. At the outset of the story, fueled by Frieda B.’s limitless imagination, Frieda and Zilla take a trip to the moon “to see what it’s like where the rockets and astronauts go.” But when her bed crash-lands and hurts the Man in the Moon, how does she respond? A fun yet tender story of adventure, friendship and making amends, Man in the Moon encourages us to see the valuable story in others and do what’s necessary to honor it. In doing so, we honor and further our own. 8" x 10". Hardcover, full-color, printed in the USA.
