Yesterday for Leaders UNITE at the International Preschool of Raleigh, the students did the YAS (You are Special) activity, where they wrote cards to other people in their program to tell them why they are special. The students learned that a leader should appreciate all of his/her team members, knowing why they are special as a person and what unique traits they can bring to a team. The students were so great at selecting different people in the class- even people they didn’t know that well. They gave each other wonderful compliments: calling them nice, beautiful, kind, fun to play with, and many more! Then they drew cards for one another to represent why their friends are so special. Some of the students even hugged their friends who gave them cards to say thank you! The students kept wanting to make more and more cards for their friends. I even made some for the students. Way to spread positivity!
