As part of rituals and habits of mind, we develop a sense of positive energy and vibes in the classroom. One of these vibes that impacts the classroom environment is our “circle of friendship”.
As a way to make the idea of a “Circle of Friendship” concrete, the children from grade 1B in Ras Beirut used clay, an inviting art medium, since it is a hands-on experience and the children explore with all their senses! Creativity soared as the children molded their clay figures. The figures reflected learner profile attributes such as principled, balanced and caring.
“We made a circle of friends because it is like a circle of peace and now we know each other better.”
