Kindergartners Explore their Inner Hero

Is there a better way to spend the afternoon than helping kindergartners create alter-egos?

Nick with volunteers

Team Awesome in Action doesn’t think so!

Nick, Lead Cool Guy of Awesome in Action, took job coach, Audrey, and Awesome Volunteers; Alex, Thalia, and Olivia on a great adventure to T.R. Paul Academy of Arts and Knowledge. There, we visited his old stomping grounds and some of his favorite teachers in their new location!

Great and knowledgeable kindergarten teacher, Amy Jenes, invited the team to her classroom to share a presentation with all of the TPAAK kinders.

The students learned about how Nick found his inner strengths, and then used that knowledge to find their own “super powers” to create a new team of Kinder super heroes!

 

 

 

Many super heroes were created that day, including Rainbow Girl, Basketball Boy, and Racer X!

 The kids even helped Nick create and try on a mask… Look at those super helpers! 

Nick and Brodie

 

Nick had a great time with his friend, Brodie, who was part of the kindergarten class!

We hope we helped all these wonderful kids understand how great they truly are, and to use their strengths proudly as they continue to grow and learn!

Until next time, fellow super heroes….remember what Michelangelo says:

High time for High Plains!

We had a fabulous time at High Plains Early Childhood last week sharing Nick’s book and some fun pictures from Africa.

Much thanks to Ms. Jessica, for organizing the visit to the classrooms; Ms. Leilani, for bringing her students to join the presentation, and to IMGP9428

Shelly Fletcher, who took time out of her busy schedule to connect us to High Plains, and to visit the classroom while Nick presented!
