Story Example: The Turtle Who Just Couldn’t Keep His Mouth Shut A story of self-control

Here’s what students are saying:

  • “When we listen to the stories and really try to understand them, we can become better citizens and better friends.”

Here’s what teachers are saying:

  • The stories have helped the children quickly internalize behavioral messages that have otherwise been difficult to teach. They will carry these stories with them for the rest of their lives.”
  • The stories seem to have countless potential in the classroom and community with involvement from staff, community members and students.
  • The stories can empower students to be involved and make changes in themselves, their home and their communities.
  • Love the idea of having High School students share the stories and discuss the characters with younger, elementary school students.
  • It is so important to allow students to tell their story, and not fall into the trap of defining students by, and teaching a single story.
