Ugly Dolls Celebrate Unique Traits  thumbnail119578

Engaging students in social-emotional learning is one goal of the Smithtown Central School District and students in Wendy Herman’s class at Smithtown Elementary School recently participated in a hands-on lesson. The class made “ugly dolls” out of felt and other materials to celebrate their uniqueness. Throughout the week, the students wrote short pieces to capture what makes the class unique, their families, and also the internal and external traits that make up who they are as individuals.
