Are you afraid of the…?Posted by Faith Barbuto
With Halloween looming, the kindergarten class has turned some of our mindfulness focus to fears. Specifically talking about what are we afraid of and what we can do when we feel afraid. We have read stories about ghosts and goblins that have just been created by overactive imaginations. We have talked about the way our “mummies” comfort us when we are scared. We have written letters to the monsters under our beds. We have shut our nightmares away in a closet! In one particularly moving activity, we drew pictures of the things that frightened us most, then faced our fears. Students looked their monsters in the face and shouted “I’m not afraid of you!” Then we ripped up the drawings and jubilantly threw them into the air!
