Service Learning

We currently have three service learning projects that we are working on. I thought I would give a little more detail about each one.

Adopt a Family - Our crew voted to adopt a family in need of some extra help this holiday season. We are purchasing gifts for them, wrapping them and tagging them with a special code. Then Ms. Allison, our social worker, will deliver them. If you would like to help your child participate in this event, check out our sign up at the link below. While we are providing a service for those in need, we are learning about how to kindly help others in a non-intrusive way.

Adopt a Family Holiday Gifts

Connecting with Australia - This project really supports our learning and the learning of the students in Mrs. Price's class in Australia. We are teaching each other about the similarities and differences in our ways of life. We are learning to appreciate different ways of doing things. We are learning to listen carefully to someone with an accent that is different from ours. We were surprised to learn that Mrs. Price's class thinks we have accents, too. We are learning to be more globally aware and make genuine connections with other people from around the world.

Smile Project - Our crew created some small posters with motivational sayings on them. Some examples include: Smile, We can do hard things, Breathe, Ta-Da (ask your child to explain this one) and more. We are randomly going to various classrooms and areas of our school and holding these signs up to encourage others to smile, work hard or have a better day. 

I am sure other projects will come up as the year continues. We will keep you posted!

Homework ~ Read a good book or two. Check out a Bedtime Math story.
