|The First Graders are learning about Kindness and Justice and character builders that everyone should try and have. One of these character builders is Courage and Bravery. We decided to choose Brave Irene by William Steig as our book to learn more about courage. We read the book and talked about how hard it was for Irene to fight the wind and the snow so that she could get the gown her mother made to the Duchess. It is hard for us to be brave and have courage but we are learning. We decided to share our acts of Courage and Bravery that we have experienced in our own lives.|

Because you are an adult doesn't me it isn't hard to be brave and have courage. Being brave asks you to stand up to things that you fear. Having courage means to move forward even if it is risky or hurtful. Remember that we all need to be brave and have courage if we are to be a total person. The good thing about this is that we have each other to hold on to, to help us get through.
