Friday Update

We had a great week in Grade 2. We have continued in our trip across Canada, been learning about the water cycle, and also talking about the Fruit of the Spirit in Bible. This week we have also spent some time reading stories and talking about kindness. In the last couple of weeks we have had some challenges with the way we are speaking to our friends, and did an activity to see how our words have impact. Each student had a heart on their desk, and we talked about hurtful words and actions that make us sad, and we crumpled the heart. Even when someone apologizes, we uncrumpled our heart, we could see that the hurtful things said and done still had an impact. We talked a lot about thinking before we speak, and how once something has been said, we can’t take it back. We can apologize, but it doesn’t completely eliminate the impact. This would be a great conversation to continue having at home with your students also. I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend.
