Who is behind the mask? And why?
The Title I students taught by Ms. Bender at St. Pius returned to school this year with face to face instruction. They must
- have their temperatures taken before entering the school building,
- social distance, and
- wear masks.
Wearing a mask all day is a new experience for most of the students.
One of the first things we did in each of our classes is to read the book Heroes Wear Masks: Elmo’s Super Adventure.
This book explores beginning the school day by the students getting their temperatures taken before entering the school building. It explains the importance of wearing a mask and also explores the fears children may have about wearing masks.
After reading and discussing the book, the students wrote responses telling about themselves behind the masks. Next, they colored pictures to go along with their responses.
Enjoy our It’s Me Behind the Mask creations! The Title I students at St. Pius are true heroes!
