Learning from our Children's Wishes

There is power in recognizing our wants and wishes, focusing our awareness towards that which we long to experience in the world. Below is an activity that I did with 1st and 2nd graders. They anonymously wrote I Wish... statements on pieces of paper and placed them in a Bucket of Wishes. Recognizing that which we wish for is a first step in articulating our intentions and discovering ways of creating the life we want to live.

How can we learn from these children's wishes?
