Accepting Others and Helping
Our theme throughout this year has been Accepting Others and Helping.
“Let us give the child a vision of the whole universe… for all things are part of the universe, and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.”
~ Maria Montessori
It is through the daily exposures to different people, languages, cultural customs, food and beliefs that our children develop compassion and an understanding of the differences and commonalities of all people.
Throughout this year we will be discovering ways to accept and learn from individuals such as Angie, from the Ability Center (above).
Our next “Accepting Other lesson is sign language for the Deaf. Theresa and Cory from Shared Lives have been frequent guests to our classroom. During their visits, we have learned about American Sign Language, Braille, and serving the community. Earlier in March, Cory taught the students his first lesson. He taught them how to improve their environment by making seed bombs. Seed bombs are a mixture of planting soil and flowering seeds that can be thrown while riding a bike or driving so beauty can be found in unusual places. See pictures below:
