“HOW TO BE A FRIEND”
45 minutes – Grades P-3
A combination of songs and a puppet show dealing with the topics of kindness, talking through disagreements, including others, sharing, not taking things that don’t belong to you, and the magic power of friendship.

 “Thanks so much, Sandy!  I received rave reviews from all our teachers.  This was a very relevant topic for early elementary.  Not only does this meet our health outcomes, but also reinforces the listening and speaking strand in language arts.  Students can easily retell the puppet stories back in their classroom.  Adding the singing element ensures that the messages will be retained.  Super value for your school’s entertainment dollar!”
Terry Rutkauskas, Teacher, Sackville Centennial School, Lower Sackville, NS  

“A LOOK AT PEACE”
45 minutes – Grades 3-6
Songs dealing with the topics of  kindness, talking through disagreements, including others, speaking up when something is not right, the power of songs and other non-violent forms of protest, and hoping for an end to war.  Exploration of what peace means to each individual.

“Great way to combine health (positive relationships) and historical content related to peace and equality.  The students were very actively engaged and seemed to really enjoy the interactive approach.  A great way to discuss important issues” 
Teacher, Millwood Elementary School, Lower Sackville, NS
