The start of the school year is a meaningful time for students and teachers. In the grade two classes, our students got to know each other better by sharing treasure boxes. What is a treasure box? The students were asked to bring in 5 items that tell us something about who they are and their interests. These items included photographs, a special cuddly toy, a certificate of excellence, and other meaningful treasures. The students then presented their treasure boxes to their classmates who got to ask questions and have a closer look at each item.
This is a memorable experience as children not only got to share about themselves, but also learn about one another. Companionship begins when we learn about each other and take time to connect to one another. It’s been a great start to a year of friendship in second grade!
