Developing compassionate, caring and responsible citizens for better social worlds.

SOARing

SOAR means

“To fly or glide high in the air.
To rise suddenly above the normal level.”

SOAR contains the essence of what CosmoKidz is about. Young children learn through conversations and creative communication that it matters what we say and do, and how we say and do it. SOAR reminds children to be aware of this.

The SOAR song, rap version

In the evidence-gathering stage of the program teachers and children have shown great enthusiasm for this word and all it stands for. We actually know of one school that has become a SOARing school!

Here is what they have to say about it:

CosmoKidz can SOAR

They can sense what’s around them

And open their hands to help others

They act with kindness

And they show respect to other people

If you asked a CosmoKid, “How did you SOAR today?”

They would tell you that when they were at home…

“My sister didn’t have any candy so I gave her some of mine.”

“I opened the door for my dad and I acted with kindness.”

“My sister hit my cousin, so me and my sister talked.”

“I helped my mom clean the house.”

When they were at school, they would tell you…

“I can help Ms. Wells pick up papers.”

“I asked someone to draw with me.”

“I was quiet in class.”

“I let my friend borrow my pencil and crayons.”

“I helped my teacher make our test.”

When they are out playing, they would say….

“I helped my sister walk when she got a sticker in her foot.”

“When my friend wanted to play with my toys I said yes to my friend.”

“I helped someone that fell on the playground.”

“I went down the slide with my sister so she wasn’t scared.”

”I can open my hands to my sister and share my toys.”

And when you ask them what does it mean to SOAR?

“I am opening my hands to others.”

“I talk to others.”

“I acted with kindness by sharing my basketball.”

“I was acting with kindness. I was asking what was wrong.”

“Rely on your friends for help.”

“Respect other people by telling them that they are beautiful.”

“I showed respect by asking a friend to play with me.”

“Act with kindness. I shared my glider colors.”
