Children know when their work is worthy and good. They know when it measures favorable against their inspirations, talents, efforts, values, and abilities. They learn to assess themselves and their ideas honestly.
On this particular day, our Apple Community members came together, collaborated, analyzed, and assessed what needed to be done. While collecting and preparing, they showed initiative and adaptability. As a team, they had to effectively communicate and solve problems. A couple of our older community members quickly assumed a leadership role. It was incredible to observe the delegation, resourcefulness and cooperation taking place. What impressed me the most while watching these students was the respect, compassion and consideration for one another.
