being considerate and caring
There are lots of ways to act like Zinni. Try it out by
doing one of these activities:
Count how many Daisies are at your meeting. Then, count how many
snacks you have. How many snacks can each Daisy have
if you want to make sure everyone gets a treat?
Set up tables with paper, crayons, markers, and paints. Start drawing
pictures. Ask an adult to ring a bell every five

drawing with a Daisy sitting next to you. Have fun
seeing how your picture changes as you share different supplies!
Think of three ways you can be considerate and caring at home, at
school, or at your Daisy meeting. Talk about it with someone in your
family. Draw a picture of you doing those three things and put it
somewhere you can see it to remind you to be considerate and caring
