This past weekend one of the students from our school died as a result of a car accident. Jack was 4 years old and in one of or DK classes. He was sleeping in his carseat when their car was hit. His mother was on her way to the schools to pick up her older son who is in second grade.
We spent a lot of time talking about what happened in our kindergarten classroom. We answered questions and talked about how Jack is now in heaven. To help the kids process a bit more what death means and give them a chance to imagine why heaven is like, we gave them the opportunity to draw. The pictures they came up with we're amazing!!
Here are just a few of them:
