To help us think about Unity Day this week, we watched the story Spookley the Square Pumpkin. The story revolves around a square pumpkin who is bullied because he is a different shape from the other pumpkins. We talked about times when we might feel like a square pumpkin, and we brainstormed about what we can do when another friend feels like a square pumpkin. Ideas included asking a friend to play or giving them a hug.
We will continue the conversation as the year goes on, but the Spookley site is a good place to get more information on the story. It is also featured on the Disney and Disney Jr. channels in the next week if you want to view it at home.
