Teaching Students to Try New Things
Everything is going great! Our reading program is in full swing. I just finished reading The Can Do Duck to our 3rd grade students...It is so encouraging to see them recite the “pledge” when they are attempting something new. Teachers are also incorporating the four step plan into their lessons. The discussion guide by Ductor Morty was a great asset. The “readers” appreciated the questions and used them within the classroom.

Teaching Positive Attitudes
Orlando, Florida --- Dr. Phillips Elementary School is using the Can Do Duck books in all of its classes for grades K through 5 for the 2007-2008 school year to help teach positive attitudes! They used the books for the 2006-2007 year for the first time and decided to continue the program again the next year. This is a picture of the principal and vice principal with a banner they created. If you look carefully, you can see the Can Do capes on some of the ducks!
Teacher Susan Northrup and her Kindergarten class from Rochester, NY made cards and raised money for the people in Colorado who were affected by the recent flooding. They were mentioned along with The Can Do Duck on the nightly news!
As Susan Northrup wrote, "To coincide with "International Dot Day 2013" The children said…We CAN, They made a plan (decorated cards and had other classrooms do the same) Got right to it and today sold the cards in the Student Alumni Union at the Rochester Institute of Technology. The money was for the people in Colorado. We are donating it to the Red Cross."
Ducktor Morty (a child psychiatrist) and his family have written and illustrated four books so far -- books that teach positive messages and entertain at the same time. Contact Ducktor Morty with questions or comments or to receive free parent and teacher guidelines.
