KinderPals is a program that helps kindergarteners with traits that a good person should have. It helps them develop them, reflect on them and more.
KinderPals helps the kindergartener by teaching them how to reflect on traits they may not have known about before which they had. For example, one may be very honest, they may not know what it means, but they have it.
KinderPals helps with both the 5th grader and their kindergartener. The 5th grader can learn something new, build on that trait and learn how to teach younger kids.
I think getting to know them was hard because at first they were very shy. Meeting somebody who isn't a trusted adult, nor a friend of their age.
I think next year they could add more programs or traits because it doesn't cover them all but it helps a lot already.
I think they liked it because it was a fun way for everyone to learn. I think mine KinderPal liked it a lot because he'd memorized all the characters in the PeekaPack™ program along with all their hobbies. I thought he learned a lot too.
