Kindergarten Class Rescues Homeless Kitten

"How are you feeling today?"

“What might help to cheer someone up when they are feeling anxious or sad?”

Students in Robin Rodriguez’s kindergarten classroom in Pacoima, CA, begin each week discussing their answers to questions like these as a way to learn about each other and begin to understand empathy and compassion as part of the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum. Robin, who is a member of the Mutt-i-grees leadership team at Fenton Primary Center, one of the original pilot sites for the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum, teaches a Mutt-i-grees lesson every Monday.
