Last Friday
Teaching positive character traits was the subject for the final assignment for the Fulda High School students in the 'Working With Children' class.

Last Friday, a visitor to the Fulda Elementary School could have watched these students working with the elementary students in grades Kindergarten, First, Second, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth. Some of the traits that were taught were respect, kindness, and responsibility.

Two of the elementary grades learned that differences were okay by listening to the children's story, Rainbow Fish and doing an activity that followed.

In other grades, the children listened to the song, Don't Laugh At Me! One grade then illustrated the lyrics of that song. Those illustrations will now be laminated and bound into book form and then presented to the sixth grade class.

One classroom of students wrote the letters of the name in bright colors on sheets of paper. They were then instructed to find one word that described them for each letter of their name. This activity taught the students that each person has individual traits.

Another class was instructed to cut shapes into coffee filters to make snowflakes. They then learned that although each snowflake was similar in size, they looked completely different. When placed together in a pile, the “snowflakes” were very beautiful. In this activity, students learned about diversity.

Helping offset the costs of these character lessons is the grant money that the Fulda FCCLA received from the Nobles/Murray Co. Roundup program.
