At Ridgeway Community School, we used two art classes to work on posters for the Hands are Not for Hitting Poster Contest. My fourth and fifth grade students were very excited be participate. We had a discussion about how hands could be used in positive ways. Here are some ideas that the children came up with. The care and thoughtfulness of these posters give me hope for the future.
“Hands are for creating. Holding hands; stop them from hurting. There are many things you rather do with your hand instead of hitting. Use your hands to start up a friendship. Use your hands wisely. Use your hands to help the earth: Plant trees.” Jayla Millen
