We read a great book last week called The Peace Book, by Todd Parr. Listen and read along with the story below.
We learned that peace is many different things. We will try to practice acts of kindness as a way create more peace each day. Thursday is International Day of Peace. Children around the world will be practicing acts of peace as a way to make a positive change in our world. Let’s all join in and do what we can to make it a more peaceful world.
On Friday the second graders will lead the School Assembly and talk our second grade Community Time. During our Community Time, we talk about the things that are going well and discuss concerns we have. We are learning how to listen to each other well, and how to problem solve together as a community. These are important learning targets for us. This makes us a strong community and creates more peace with our friends at school.
Thursday we will explore our West Linn community at our local grocery store, bank, orthodontics office and public library. A community helps provide us with our wants and our needs. We are continuing our social studies unit on Communities and look forward to seeing why West Linn, Oregon is such a great community to live in.
