This week, a chocolate lab pup, Ceili came to visit classrooms. We discussed the term empathy and feelings when you are a visitor or new to an experience - just like Ceili must feel on her first day in the classroom. In Heritage House, we read the story
Liam Labradoodle Learns Whole Body Listening
. We discussed how we use our whole bodies when listening to friends while playing or in the classroom. To build the power of the experience, classrooms shared their own "whole body listening" charts that are used as a reminding tool.
Our friends in grades 1 - 4 shared about experiences of being a bucket "filler" and bucket "dipper." Students gave Ceili compliments. We also reflected on being positive with others and acting with integrity in our school culture of kindness.
