Stress is given to the importance of cooperation and the success that is achieve through kind words and support for others. Students then work together to create a mural on a common subject. This year the subject in one of my buildings was birds in a tree. I used this fun handout from Expressive Monkey to assist students in creating their own wacky bird. They colored with markers, cut them out as skillfully as possible to remove all white borders and glued them on the tree in their place of choice.
