The More We Get Together! Whales Talk About Peace

Whales began their week playing games that encouraged collaboration and teamwork. We rolled back the blue carpet and put together many floor puzzles during classroom choice time. We worked together to sort out all the Unfix cubes by color, then worked together to create patterns with those same Unifix cubes. We wrote appreciation letters to friends, sharing those things that we love most about one another. We watched a puppet show about friends who struggled with strong feelings, and Whales helped the puppets make some new choices that encouraged peace. Whales brainstormed ideas for things that made them feel peaceful. We discovered that though not all friends find the same things to be peaceful, there are plenty of things we could all agree made our hearts happy together!
