This week, we read Chrysanthemum. We talked about how we should treat one another and how our heart gets wrinkled when people hurt us with words or actions. So, we passed around a purple heart and talked about a time our hearts were hurt and we would wrinkle it just a little. When everyone had a chance to share, we tried really hard to straighten the heart back out. We even put bandaids on it to see if that would help. We ended up discussing how sometimes our hearts get hurt and we can forgive, but our heart is still a little wrinkled. We ended our lesson by making some headbands that read: Before you speak, think and be smart. It’s hard to fix a wrinkled heart. The kids loved it and learned a lot!
