Product Description

The New Kid is an original narrative poem written in a story style about a new student coming into class who looks a bit different from everyone else and the reactions she gets from one peer in particular. Remember being that new kid? How hard it was walking through that door hoping to be accepted and liked? This poem will take you through those feelings with some wonderful lessons in the end.

Along with this original poem are sets of lessons/activities for each of the character traits of acceptance, empathy, and friendship. The goal of this product is to help children better understand and practice the great character traits.

Excerpt of the poem:

The New Kid

A Lesson in Acceptance, Empathy and Friendship

 A new student joined our class today. She just moved into town.

“She’s different!” I whispered to my friend and looked at her with a frown.

Her skin is lighter than my own, her hair a bright shade of pink!

She’s dressed in something I’d never wear. She’s different! I still think.

She takes a seat in front of me and looks up and down her row.

She turns to me- I look away- I just want her to go!

The teacher introduces her. Her name is strange to hear.

A few kids start to giggle- that’s when I see her tears.

It’s time for art- we all line up. It’s my favorite class of all.

I see that she is sitting tight not ready for the hall.
