Thanks for taking a peek into the wonder-filled world of first grade! After a three day weekend, it was time to get back to learning together. A couple of my favorite things from today? Using apples to help kids understand diversity and equality! We continued a discussion we started last week about how we are all unique and special, and that we are alike in that we have loving hearts and curious minds. Today I decided to extend that idea by showing the kids different kinds of apples. We compared the shapes, colors, and sizes, and decided that people are a little like apples. All the apples looked different! I then proceded to cut the apples in half cross-ways to show the kids that each apple, no matter the shape, size or color, has a star on the inside! They were cheering as I made my way through each apple! We then cheered that each of us is a star!! Valuable lesson for all!!
Stop by again soon as we continue on our first grade journey!
Have a wonder-filled tomorrow!
