Lesson 2: Berry Ball Blues

Lesson 2A: Letter from Cody

Hi friends!

It’s Cody here. I am feeling really, really mad. The Berryball finals are supposed to be this weekend, but now they are canceled. It’s because of the Peekaflu. It’s not fair! No one on my Incrediberries team even seems sick. We worked really hard to make it to the finals. Why can’t we still play? 

Have you ever had plans changed at the last minute? Were you ever really looking forward to something, but then it was canceled? How did you feel? What did you do? Did you try to understand why it happened?

Your friend, 

Cody

  • Parents/guardians, read the letter from Cody with your child(ren).
  • Ask the following questions:
    • How is Cody feeling?
    • Have you ever had something you were excited about canceled? If so, tell me about it. If not, can you imagine how it might feel?
    • How did you feel?
    • What did you do?
    • Why is it important right now to stay at home even if you’re not showing symptoms of illness?
  • Help your child write a letter, or draw an illustration, or record a video response to Cody.
