Description

Am I Weird? is the second title in Jennifer Licate's Navigating Friendships book series - a quick read chapter book for students in grades 4 through 7 which focuses on helping students learn and accept that not everyone is the same, and it's perfectly fine to be who you are - even if you don't feel like you fit in. This is a great story for pre-teen and early adolescents who are struggling with changing friendships, learning about self-advocacy, and figuring out how to get along with others. 

Included with this set is the the activity guide for teachers and counselors to use with students in conjunction with the chapter book. The text from the story is incorporated into the activity guide and is designed to engage students in meaningful conversation by offering discussion questions and activities after each chapter. There are 20 activities along with a digital content link for reproducible forms and worksheets. 

The middle years can be tough, especially when you feel like you don't quite fit in. 

Meet Eva. Eva is an artist with a unique style! She loves trying new forms of art and she really enjoys crafts. People often compliment Eva on her artwork! But when Eva looks around at school and in the neighborhood, she sees most people are dressing similarly and enjoying the same kinds of outdoor or sporty activities. When the other girls at school gather, they are generally nice to Eva, but they talk and sometimes even gossip about things that make Eva feel a bit uncomfortable. These just don't appeal to Eva, and she wonders... Am I Weird?

Luckily, Eva has a best friend, Isaiah, and an understanding mom who are there to remind her that everyone is different, and as long as she is kind and caring toward others, she can be true to herself and be happy.
