As program aides, we assist Annie, Maggie, Amber, and Renee with the program activities at each site. In this time, it has been so great to see the work that Brashear does within the communities surrounding it. Our team puts a lot of effort and heart into working with the Brashear kids, and it has been an amazing experience to be a part of so far.
An activity that really kept the 2nd and 3rd grade group engaged was making sand art with the theme of Navajo Indians. Maggie told the kids a tiny bit of information about the Indians and then gave them symbols meaning things such as: friendship, peace, happiness, movement, etc. Then the kids were able to choose their favorites and use those in their art work.
