As parents and teachers we strive to promote strong character traits in children. The poem, “Children Learn What They Live,” by Dorothy Law Nolte (you can see a copy of her poem at http://www.empowermentresources.com/info2/childrenlearn.html) is the inspiration for this project. I call it Wanna Bees, as in, “I wanna be happy, or I wanna be loyal or I wanna be honest.” To be a positive role model, I have to “wanna be” too. You’ll find directions for this project, “Wanna Bees,” in the 2nd Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.
Happy New Year, and congratulations! I wanted to let you know that you made it onto our list of The Top 100 Kids' Craft Ideas of 2014.
