Divorce and "Pudding"

Today the third grade FISH (Families In Separate Homes) group met. During our time together,we read a great book called "Was it the chocolate pudding?" By, Sarah Levins

It is about a boy who made a mess of chocolate pudding and thinks that it was his mess that made his parents get divorced. By the end of the book, he realizes that it was not his fault and feels relieved!

After, we used "vanilla pudding" (A.K.A. shaving cream!) to draw pictures of how the boys in the book felt, and then we moved on to talking/drawing about how each of them felt about THEIR family/divorce. Not only was it fun for them, but it was a GREAT way to get them talking and sharing!
