Each month we have the opportunity to work with our 3rd grade buddies in our character education lessons. As a school each grade has teamed up to provide lessons in a unique way to teach character education and bully prevention. The children and teachers look forward to this time each month because it gives a great learning opportunity for the children to work together. This past Friday the children learned about respect and teamwork. The children worked together as a team to carry a unifix cube on a popsicle stick across the gym floor. I heard a lot of the children using great communication and having to figure out how to work with the height difference and also the length of each child's steps. It was great to watch and the children discussed afterward about how they had to use teamwork to make it work!
