Lower school students celebrate the unique abilities God has given us

For the month of January, second grade students focused on learning about the “A” for “abilities” in the G.R.A.C.E. Model. Students celebrated the unique abilities that God has gifted each individual.  
“While there are many ways that the Lord has created each of us uniquely, we focused on individuals with dyslexia, down syndrome, and some physical disabilities including deafness, blindness, and physical handicaps,” reflects Tonya Walden, second grade chair. 

Second grade classes displayed interactive bulletin boards outside of their classrooms to teach the rest of the lower school about diversity of God’s creation. The boards included QR codes that linked to explanatory videos. The bulletin boards feature members of the Wesleyan lower school family who wanted to share their individual stories and experiences concerning ability.  

As Psalm 139:13-14 says, “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well."

Students reflected on the inherent value in every human being as they are created and crafted by a perfect God. What a beautiful way to celebrate the Lord’s creation; way to go, second grade!
