Tiny Tots Spread Kindness
While many SaskTel Be Kind Online initiatives moved online with pandemic restrictions in place, 3 and 4 -year-old students at Biggar’s Tiny Tot Nursery School still managed to find fun and creative ways to promote kindness throughout the community.
“After all the challenges we’ve encountered during the pandemic, the kids wanted to show everyone in the community that we still care about each other,” said Demonda Evanisky, Tiny Tots Nursery School Teacher. “I think it really provided some relief for the disconnect that many of us experienced during the pandemic.”
With the help of Demonda, the children decided one of the ways they would show kindness was to make and distribute friendship bracelets. “This was a great idea for the kids because it also taught them people smile when they gave them away,” she said. Additionally, the class made sun catchers, gifted flowers, and created supportive posters for front line workers in the community.
“We thought it was important to give thanks to front line workers since COVID has been especially hard on them,” Demonda said.
The kids placed their painted handprints on big pieces of cardboard, and we wrote messages that read “With these hands we give thanks.”
“This grant made it possible to teach my preschool students about giving and caring,” she said. “One of my students summed it up the best by saying ‘This has made my heart be in love.’ It has left a lasting impression on my students and for that I would like to thank SaskTel from the bottom of my heart.”
