DIY: Free Social Skills

With Our Differences We Can Fly!

At WINGS we think it’s really important for our kids to recognize that people celebrate the holidays in a variety of different ways. We help them to understand that different people have different religious beliefs and traditions, and we emphasize the importance of trying to learn more about how others celebrate rather than making fun of kids who are different.

During our relationship skills week we teach the following song:

We are different, not the same
Sharing strengths is our game
You’re unique and so am I
With our differences we can fly!

When you hear kids teasing or making fun of other kids, this song helps them focus….

Example: "Kirk, remember, we are all different. What’s the rest of the song? Teasing Jordan for not celebrating Christmas is not going to help us fly!"
