Trollskogen has been exploring the idea of our community from the first days of school. As we begin to focus in on our umbrella project- Transformation: beyond our walls, Trollskogen has been expanding our definitions of who and what belong in our community.
Who is a part of our community?
Bea- My mom
Meher- and my Mom!
Quinn- My parents, my grandparents
Roman- My Dad, he helps dead people
Celeste-The Mayor, he takes care of the city
Bea- No the world
Celeste- I saw him once
So we have a community at home, Who is a part of our school community?
Astrid- and we have to thank Manija really because it’s a lot of work and she usually works all alone
Roman- Helpers help people that need helpers like police and firefighters and doctors
Is Ms. Martha? (our bus driver)
Roman-Yeah everybody is!
Astrid-the Mailman too
What does our community need?
Eva- Our community needs niceness
Tara- love and care, it doesn’t need pushing or not caring
Celeste- to grow new trees
Eva- Once my Dad gave a poor lady money, for real he did that
Tara- My mom helps the community because she helps people get homes and jobs and food if they need it and she takes care of cats
Bea- Does my mom?
Hugo-Does my Dad?
A lot of our parents help the community, how can we help our community ?
Celeste- Give clothing to people who were in floods
Eva- Taking care of cats at the community garden
Hugo- Taking care of trash and putting it in the garbage
Astrid- Being kind to our moms
Eva- Being kind to our friends
Roman-make sure everyone has food
We will next consider what we can contribute to our community, and how we can put our ideas into action as community members.
