I had the wonderful privilege working with Mind Treasures. There are two representatives from Mind Treasures per class. Recently, I worked with the primary grades and it was so much fun. I love to see how positiveness can motivate minds. The students are eager to learn and express themselves using there new found knowledge. At the end of the program we asked the students what they learned and what impressed them the most, I was very surprised by the responses. The students were very specific on what they learned and how much of an impact it had on their lives. One student expressed his desire to stop wasting food when he eats because so many children do not have anything to eat. He also stated that he will start taking smaller portions in an effort to not waste food. Another student told me that she learned how to be selfless and not selfish, and that she wanted to donate the toys she was no longer using. This non profit organization not only teaches students how to become better adults, but also how to become wiser adults when it comes to spending and using money. Throughout the program we use a register, at the end of our workbooks, for students to calculate how much money they are spending, sharing and saving. It teaches students the importance in saving for something they want and not spending money carelessly. It also helps children to see the importance in giving back to the community to help make it better. I hope to always be a part of this excellent program!
