⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ FEEDBACK FROM TEACHERS LIKE YOU:
❤️ I loved this! It was my back-to-school and all-year bulletin board to build community and expectations. We read the book and made the salad. The students love anything you make in the classroom! It brought a meaningful discussion about how to treat each other and how not to be a “rotten banana”. (1st Grade Teacher)
❤️ This was a perfect learning experience in our unit about being a member of a community. It is one the students reflect on often. (Kindergarten Teacher)
❤️ This truly helps my students and I bond together and learn about friendship. I do it every year. The parents love it, too!! (Kindergarten Teacher)
