The Little Brooklyn Pre-K Centers celebrate
Respect for All Week
Respect for All Week
We read these amazing books in Pre- K 205 that helped us celebrate and appreciate our similarities and our differences. The children used multicultural paint to create paintings of themselves and their friends and families that have different color skin than they do. We also used multicultural construction paper to create an All About Us Rainbow. All of these read alouds, discussions and activities helped the children comprehend that no matter how different we all are on the outside we are all the same inside. That we all have feelings, we all feel happy and sad, we all get scared and nervous. That we all have a heart, that when we fall, all of our blood is red. That all of our different skin tones create an amazing and beautiful rainbow. That we are like all of the colorful flowers that create a beautiful garden. That we are like the yummy food that we enjoy eating, like peanut butter, butterscotch topping , chocolate cupcakes, french toast, peaches, vanilla ice cream and honey too. That we are all special, unique and different and the same too. That it’s ok to be different. That it’s ok to care and love for someone that looks different than us. That when we all stand side-by-side in our beautiful hues we all make this a better and happier world.
