Being mindful of ourselves and others is a very important part of our days in Pre-Kindergarten. The week before winter break, we began our time together listening to Miss Banni who read us a story called “A Perfect Gift”. We talked about how each of us is a unique and perfect gift and that sometimes the most important gift isn’t something that can be wrapped but rather something inside of our heart to be given to someone else. The answers the kids came up with included kindness, love, heartfulness, joy, peace, hugs, and many others. As a visual representation, we created an ornament that included our special gift inside to hang on our Christmas trees. As we begin a new year together, may we all take a moment to enjoy one another’s gifts each and every day.
