I have found some excellent books about Peace, at our local library. Our class has really enjoyed What Does Peace Feel Like? This book is interviews with children, asking what they think peace feels, tastes, and smells like. It is charming, and offers a great perspective! This week we are going to read Can You Say Peace? by Karen Katz. This book shows children from all around the world, saying "Peace," in their native languages.
On this note, I want to (and I hope I have figured out how to, correctly) share a freebie file! Whooo
hoo! I have created a file of "peace cards." They are cards with lovely watercolor backgrounds (I hope they feel a bit Waldorf-ish as I was very inspired by Waldorf alphabet cards) which are printed with the word peace, in a variety of different languages. I have printed out a set for my class, laminated them, and set them out in a basket. Next to the first basket, I have yet another basket, but this one has blank cards. The children may choose a card, and copy the printing. After that, they may decorate it. I am hoping we will have a wide variety of homemade peace cards to put up in the hall of our school, very soon! As a side note, I may also find it necessary to have plain white cards, with the peace words printed on them in dotted form. If you find you would like a PDF of the cards, with just the words in a dotted font, please leave me a note in the comment box. Thanks! : )
Okay, so here goes. Hopefully, you will find my peace cards right HERE! Enjoy!
