Christmas and a Goat….

Nina's Arena-Teaching & Learning in the Australian primary classroom

My students live in a beautiful part of the world and they know it! They are an amazing group of young learners and today they demonstrated this. Each year I give my students a little gift, but this year one of my colleagues and I decided that maybe we could do something else. Instead of buying each student a gift we bought them a goat.
Today was our last day together, so we sat our students down and explained that they would not be getting a gift from us this year but we had bought them something else.
When we told them we’d bought them a goat they were excited. We explained that our goat would be given to a disadvantaged village in the world. They asked interesting questions and were thrilled. The goat is called Jayda after the two grades and each child was given a copy of the email to share with their families.
