May, the month of Tolerance

During the month of May, we focused on the value, Tolerance.  The goal was to teach the kids what it means to have patience, respect, and acceptance for different cultures and people, as well as their own peers.  We began the month with theater workshops, where the kids created and presented scenes representing different scenarios of tolerance.

We then moved on to a drawing/paint activity, where the kids could express their viewpoints of what tolerance meant to them, using colors that signify and represent tolerance in their communities.

Our third week, we used a listening activity to draw monsters!  The students had to listen as the teacher slowly announced exactly how many body parts the monster had and where….

….and we finished out the month with the students learning about another culture while making Argentinian rain sticks!
