Teaching and listening
We are working to become better listeners so we can be wise and teach others. To do this we need to really pay attention to each other and respect what others think and say. We have a sharing time at the end of the day where we talk about the day. We share the good things that make us happy and what we are proud of. It's also a time to talk about how we can make tomorrow even better. Today we made our own talking stick to use while we are sharing. We decorated it with symbols to remind us of important things. The yellow yarn is to remind us to be happy. The red reminds us about kindness and caring for each other. The white is for peace. We all like a peaceful place for learning and the brown reminds us of nature and how important nature is. We put feathers so we remember to speak softly and use kind words. We each chose a rock to decorate it with we glued them all together. We added a piece of fuzzy at the top to remind us of how to treat others and the pine cone at the top reminds us we are all growing and learning together. Pretty amazing for 6 year olds!
