Appreciation Day

As the saying goes...

Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well. - Voltaire

Today our second graders were encouraged to appreciate others and see the magic of this gesture. The Children were asked to report to the teacher the good things in their peers. They were also asked to write their perspectives about others.

The children were charged like live wires and in minutes the whole culture of the class room changes. All the tiny tots were busy observing and discussing the good things in others. They build on positive attitude for others. The day was special as they did everything differently .The appreciation lens made things kaleidoscopic for them. The best thing about this day was, children realized that every one in the class have many good things a few so called bad things.

Children connected their perspectives about their peers to Learner Profile attributes and attitudes. It is an interesting way of managing the class with positive vibes.
