Thanks for the jamboard so that we can share our ideas with the kids after being inspired by them! Such sincere and thoughtful responses from the Rainbows!
This presentation helped remind me that sometimes we can make really big change by starting with something small and inspiring/challenging others to join us.
Go you! Never too early to make a positive difference in the world in which you live.
I really enjoyed this place-based and student driven learning! It is a great example of how this holistic approach can be done in primary grades! Love these drawings and their genuine answers. Thank you kindergartners for teaching us what it means to open our heart to bring kindness and care to the world.
Go Rainbows!! Y’all seem so kind and caring to others. Thank you for your ideas! <3 If you crowdfund for that billboard, let us know how we can help!!
These kindergardeners are so thoughtful!!! May they grow up nurturing this kindness within themselves and in all the people they meet along the way. Congrats, Ms. Denomme! I’m always impressed by the PBE work you do with these students.
I love this! It’s never too young to start making a place better, and the responses from the kids were great! Some even made me almost cry;) Great job!!
