Refugee Supply Drive

The project is a supply drive for local Refugees by donating house/school supplies and items to be donated to the World Relief Organization. The project starts with a short lesson on who refugees are and what persecution is then goes into how the World Relief Organization can help by collecting resources and items for Refugees in Spokane.

Thank You Cards

My students were learning about a police officer and a K-9 officer so I thought it would be a great idea for them to write thank-you letters to first responders. I showed my students a small presentation explaining what first responders are and how they help us. They then made thank-you cards and drew pictures with their 1st-grade buddies for first responders in Spokane. I plan on going to Spokane Police Department and giving them the cards here soon.

Paper Flowers and Friendly Letters

I had my students at my practicum create paper flowers and friendly letters for the residents at the Cheney Care Center. The friendly letters are letters that have a greeting, closing, and a body that contains any information the teacher would like. The paper flowers are made from paper and pipe cleaners and are simple to make. The paper flowers and friendly letters would then be delivered to the organization and the organization would then schedule a zoom call or give photos to the school so the students can see what they have done.

Donating to Animals in Need

I’ve been working at Spokane Humane Society for over a year and was very excited to partner with them with this project. I wanted to show my placement students the benefits of donating to animals in need. I explained to them all the important aspects Spokane Humane Society offers to their adoptable animals. Students were very engaged, since who doesn’t love animals.

Letters to Soldiers

This organization is something that allows everyone to support our soldiers in so many different ways. There are multiple different teams included in this organization include card and letter writing team, angel bakers team, chaplain support team, deployed adoptions team, ladies of liberty team, and special operations forces team. All of these aspects of the organization provide some kind of support and help for soldiers that might not get it from other sources. It shows the soldiers that they are loved and appreciated by a lot of people around them. For this project, I chose to register for the card writing team and send some letters from my kindergarteners to the soldiers.
