International Day Of Peace

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.

As a Stafford community let’s all join in with others to do what we can to make it a more peaceful world.

Which acts of peace will you practice this week?

    Mrs. Amri –

    I will be work on being kind to my sisters. Our neighbors had a house fire this morning, so I will be praying for them as they go through this process of rebuilding their home. We will also reach out to them to see if there’s anything we can do to help.

    Hi Mrs. Amri,

    The acts of peace that I am going to practice this week are being helpful and nice to my brother and sister, take care of and feed our dogs, and take the trash and recycling out to help take care of our planet.
