Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Project

As a 6th grade teacher, my students are going through a lot of changes while attempting to figure out their own emotions.

Therefore, activities about compassion can help cultivate an emotionally safe environment, and ease the way students are feeling.

These items are card making kits, a book, deodorants, and snacks.

Card making kits encourages students to consider the feelings and experiences of their peers. By creating personalized cards for those going through a rough time, students learn to step into the shoes of others and understand how their actions can positively impact someone else's day.

Similarly, discussing empathy through a book helps students gain a deeper understanding of different perspectives and experiences. By exploring real-life examples and scenarios, students learn to empathize with others and appreciate the diversity within their community.

Providing deodorants discreetly addresses hygiene concerns, creating an environment where all students feel comfortable. By showing compassion towards those facing challenges beyond their control, students learn the importance of empathy and understanding.

Lastly, providing snacks for hungry students not only addresses their immediate physical needs but also teaches valuable lessons about looking out for one another. Also, they can be used to reward students who are caught doing compassionate or kind acts.

In conclusion, these items collectively teach students to see the world through the eyes of others. I'll gauge students' comprehension and application of compassion through their demonstrated acts of kindness and supportive behavior towards their peers.
