We also read The Cello of Mr O. Mr O. lives in a war-torn village and would play his cello to bring hope and peace to the people. We talked about how he shared his gift of music to spread Peace to the people who were left in his village. The class drew pictures of Mr O as well as a scene they thought was meaningful or important. We used paper bags as our medium. Ask your child why the paper bag is symbolic.
This month, we are recognizing students who are demonstrating peace in the school, classroom and friends. I will be looking for peaceful actions in our classroom.
