The two day class has been exploring what it means to be a good friend. We have shared with each other what it feels like in our hearts when someone is kind to us and what it feels like to be kind to another. We all agree that it feels much better to be kind even when we disagree about something important to us. After a blank canvas showed up in our room we decided to work together to make a work of art that depicts our conversations about friendship, kindness, love and peace. We started by taking turns painting the board a lovely shade of sky blue and off we went! Wait until you see what we did together. We followed up with books that support building a world of acceptance and love. This ideal seems to come naturally to our spunky, insightful, artistic, and most of all KIND two day kiddos!
Look what we can do when we work together!
Hands are for high fives ( and seeing what happens when you mix two colors together)!
Sometimes the teachers need a helpful hand or two from the students! Who's teaching who here?!
All hands on board! See A Heart Share a Heart and Extra Yarn inspired our next steps!
Teachers need to cooperate too (and they didn't want to miss out on the high five fun)!
We chose our favorite colors, we shared our kindest words, we laughed a lot and we worked together to make something beautiful. Friendship is fun. High fives all around!
