These games were inspired by Jon Klassen's books, This is Not my Hat & I Want My Hat Back. Both books are great for discussing important topics, such as, trust, revenge, morals, fairness, stealing, etc.
Pre-K, Kindy and even 1st graders have been know to have "sticky fingers". I've included a few games, ideas and a worksheet to work on apologies, description, and ownership. Children practicing apologies makes it easier for them when a situation actually arises and they need to apologize.
If you don't know these books. Read more about them by clicking on the links below.
