Un Día Ayudé a Mi Mamá

By Isaac

A student learns that good things, like kindness, come full circle.


Grade 2


Social-Emotional Learning

Un día ayudé a mi mamá, y después fuimos a comprar helado. El helado era bueno y mi mamá me dijo, “Si haces cosas buenas, cosas buenas vendrán a tí.” Yo pensé en qué significa eso, y pensaba que si yo sigo haciendo cosas buenas, y si yo ayudaba más, más cosas buenas pasarán a mi.


One day I helped my mom, and after that we went to buy ice cream. The ice cream was good and my mom said to me, “If you do good things, good things will come to you.” I thought about what that meant, and I was thinking that if I keep doing good things, if I help more, more good things will happen to me.
