CLIMB Theater, sponsored by the Diversity Community and the PTA, performed interactive plays in lower campus classrooms on November 8. Teams of Actor / Educators used the power of storytelling to explore social learning in relatable and memorable ways. Role playing was incorporated to demonstrate positive social interactions.

 

The topic for kindergarteners was FRIENDSHIP, while first graders focused on RESILIENCE and second graders delved into CONFLICT RESOLUTION / NON-VIOLENCE. All students got involved in brainstorming ways to help make school a welcoming and peaceful place.

 

Here are some great quotes from the students, in response to CLIMB questions at the end of class sessions: What are some things that you like to do with a friend? "Spy on my parents." What did you learn? "To smile when I meet someone new." When you're feeling bad, what do you do to try to feel better? "Build legos." "Read books." "Put my face against my pet's soft fur." What did you learn? "That bounce back means when something sad happens I can feel happy again." What part did you like best? "Acting, because you can push someone to show an example and it's not really being mean." What did you learn? "That it's important to breathe." Be sure to ask your child what he or she learned that day!
