Where we always try our very best!

Building Classroom Community

on March 9, 2018

Sometimes it’s good to take some time out of the day and remember the importance of friendship, kindness and empathizing with one another. As we become more and more comfortable with each other as a class, it is very important that our classroom community stays strong, so that we never feel bullied or have the temptation to bully others.

Today we read The Rainbow Fish. Here’s a summary:

The most beautiful fish in the ocean is asked to share one of his shining scales with a little blue fish, and to which he refuses. All the other fish in the sea leave him alone, and he wondered why. He goes to the wise octopus for advice, and she tells him to give away his scales. Rainbow Fish reluctantly does so, except for one. In the end, he is less beautiful then he was before, but he has new friends and is now the happiest fish in the sea.

After reading this beautiful story of friendship, we were given special shiny “scales” for our own rainbow fish, and then we were asked to share our scales with a friend. For each word of kindness or friendship, we earned another scale. See how wonderful our own Rainbow Fish turned out. Our invisible “buckets” definetly felt full after this activity.
