Roots Class (pre-k to 1st) w/Laura:
This Sunday in Roots we read ‘Change Sings” by Amanda Gorman. This book is a poem with illustrations that show children learning how to make a difference in their community and the world. We also watched a video of children singing “We are the World” We talked about children being able to spread the message of how to make a difference and love through song. And that children can make a difference too. After that, we wrote our ideas about we hope Wildflower adopting the 8th principle will do and what we can do to make it happen.
Seedlings Class (2nd to 5th) w/Piaf:
This week we began with an active game where we raced around the room touching different colors to represent each of our 8 Principles and then discussed what the 8th Principle meant. In kid language it states that we are FOR diversity and AGAINST racism and other oppressions, so we brainstormed some examples of each. Finally, the kids wrote what it meant to them to be part of a church that has passed the 8th Principle on index cards that later were hung up in the Community Room.
Wildflower Youth Group (Middle & High School) w/Solveij:
Today in Youth Group the youth checked in about how they’re feeling as mthe school year comes to an end. They shared that they want to see Wildflower take action to address racism and oppression of all kinds. Finally, they worked on wall hangings representing the 8 Principles and a poster to promote Youth Group to their friends. 🙂
