Ms Munro explained how to cope with these challenges. The plan worked even better than expected as the entire class offered great solutions and strategies to deal with changes.
Wow! Even I learnt a few things myself. It felt good to help someone else and I felt Sophia and I had made a connection
The next morning, I walked up to Sophia
Hi Sofia, would you like to come to my house today?
Sure, I'd really like that! See you soon.
Sophia smelt great her B.O was gone, and I had made a new friend, I was proud of myself. Working together helped us bond and come up with useful solutions that didn't offend anyone individually .
