Time to Teach Tolerance
I teach kindergarten students who are very enthusiastic and inquisitive learners. Their backgrounds are varied, from affluent to poverty level. Some are ESOL students, and some have special needs. Our school is large with over 900 students in Pre-K through 5th grade. Our diverse population makes us special. Our curriculum focuses on student inquiry-based learning with a global perspective. For this age, hands-on learning is essential. They love to play in centers to learn financial literacy through a grocery store, create in an art center, build in a block and game center, listen to stories on a computer, read books in the reading center, and explore in the science center. They learn through play and by doing. Technology is a part of these young children’s lives. They are learning about themselves and others every day.
According to Helen Keller “The highest result of education is tolerance.” To help my young students develop tolerance, I must expose them to the thoughts, customs and traditions of others. They must learn how things work. They must learn about the world. I know that the kindergarten version of the social studies and science Weekly Studies would be an excellent nonfiction source of learning about others. They get so excited to get a paper decodable book or a magazine. They look at the pictures and “read” it over and over. I find that students that are academically successful have access to many different types of reading materials. There are technology components that students will have access to as well. I will use the teacher’s guide to conduct a weekly lesson and then students will take the magazine home to add to their home library.
