Once Upon a Red Race Car

By Nathan A., 826DC

A story about reaching out to others.


Grade 1


Narrative, Social-Emotional Learning

Once upon a time at school at indoor recess, I saw Jason. Jason sat by himself. He was very quiet. I thought to myself “I want to play with Jason.” I had a red race car toy. I wanted to share with Jason. We played together and had fun. Then we became friends. We both felt happy. Now we play together a lot and have a good time. The end!
