In first grade we are thinking about and discussing the parts of us that make us unique. All of us are special in our own way, and there is value in taking time to acknowledge and honor this uniqueness. As part of the lesson, we read "The Sandwich Shop," by Queen Rania Al Abdullah. The story talks about the experience of two girls who learn to understand and appreciate each other through the food they eat. Each student then worked to create their own "Unique Sandwich," highlighting the parts that make them special. We will share these during our next lesson.
If you have a moment, ask your child to share with you the parts of them they feel make them unique. And please continue to find opportunities to highlight the parts of your children that make them the amazing people they are.
