After reading Heidi's previous post, I decided to write my own about tolerance in the classroom.
I live in Spain, we have lots of diversity in my school.
Just the other day a kid asked another: 'Are you friends with Jesus?' 'No I'm not' said the other one. The first kid came to me almost in tears to tell me about it with the other one chasing him and asking: 'But is he in first grade?'
I couldn't help laughing. Of course he didn't know Jesus, he is Muslim and just came from Morocco. Then we had that little talk about different families and respect.
How I love first grade!
