At LMS there are various ways we celebrate, honor and teach peace. Recently the entire school made Tibetan Peace Flags and we held a peace assembly in the multipurpose room.
Some Children's House classrooms have a Peace Table with a Peace Rock and/or Peace Flower to sit with while they practice active listening and resolve conflicts.
In Lower Elementary we focus a large portion of our morning meetings, especially during the first six weeks of school, on community building and peace education. We role play, practice conflict resolution and read books such as Amazing Grace, The Name Jar, Ferdinand and The Boy With Pink Hair.
This winter in LE2 we read A Little Book of Peace, by Chandra Fernando. After reading a book about peace LE2 created our own peace book (see the slideshow below), with each student writing what reminds them of peace and using. We also created an interactive bulletin board titled "Peace Is..." and asked students, teachers, staff and parents to share what peace means to them.
