You Are Special

The Wemmicks were small wooden people carved by the woodworker Eli. Each Wemmick he created differently. The Wemmicks spent all day in their villages handing out stickers to people they say. There were star stickers and gray circle stickers. Everyone wanted the stars because they felt so good upon receiving one. Punchinello did not have very many talents so he did not get any star stickers, only more dots. He got so many dot stickers, he did not even want to go outside. Other village members said that he was not a good wooden person. Punchinello believed them. Then he met Lucia, a who was unlike any he had ever met. She had no dots or stars. Stickers would not stick on her. She told him to be sticker less, he should go see Eli. Eli was very happy to see Punchinello. Eli told him he was special and it did not matter what the other Wemmicks thought of him. Eli told him that the stickers would only stick if Punchinello allowed them to stick. Punchinello felt happy and a sticker fell off. He learned to not worry about what the other Wemmicks thought. I can use this to show my students that they are all special and they should not worry about what others think.
