Writing a Message Is an Exercise in Becoming More Aware of Our Feelings

IMG_3970

Children delight in making messages for their class family, home family, extended families, and friends. In this blog post you can see one child detailing an original message.

I noticed the child:

  • Chose the message area during choice time
  • Decided to make a message for a particular person
  • Developed a plan
  • Carefully selected materials from the message area
  • Created the message
  • Found the address of the message recipient on the address panel
  • Signed the message
  • Put the number address of the recipient on the message
  • Placed the message in the recipient’s box

Developing Skills from writing a message:

  • Literacy
  • Empathy
  • Love
  • Caring
  • Communication
  • Art
  • Fine motor

And the learning is endless – just from the simple task of writing a message.

I invite you to write a message – an art quickly fading in the age of technology.  Writing a message is an exercise in becoming more aware of our feelings.
