Building Kindness

February has been a month filled with opportunities to build kindness:  Month of Love pledges; Pre-school Book Drive; Valentines; and the kindness tree, to name a few.  We have also had many opportunities to build kindness during each day as we learn and play together. 

As a way to extend our creative thinking our provocation was “Show KINDNESS”.  The students had a large variety of objects to use to create a representation of the above.  This is what they created, with an explanation of what kindness means to them.

It has been especially wonderful to learn about God’s great kindness to us through our study on the Parables of Jesus.  We learned that God loves us so much that He, just like the father of the prodigal son, runs out to meet us!  He searches for us like the “good shepherd” looks for the lost sheep and He does not stop until we are found and safe with Him.
