For the last two months we started working on tape art. We made tape figures to represent the Purchase Five (respectful, patient, empathic, persistent, and responsible). For example, there’s a boy raising his hand being respectful. There is a girl surfing to finally catch a wave and reach her goal and that represents persistent. Another figure is a boy helping a girl up, those figures represent empathic. One of the other figures is playing soccer and waiting to get the ball and that represents patient. Another figure is a girl walking her dog and that represents the last of the Purchase Five (responsible).
