One of the goals for La Semilla after school program has been to help the students get to know one another. An activity that has helped us work towards achieving this goal was creating and sharing their “Coat of Arms.” Within each section of their Coat of Arms are different prompts where they can share about their goals, family, favorites, unique experiences and motto. Two students have shared their Coat of Arms since the start of the year. Many people bring in photos to share, and after they present their Coat of Arms, their classmates ask them questions about their lives. The students have surpassed our expectations by asking questions, both serious and comical, that really help them get to know one another.
