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.

Pencil Project

This is a pencil drive for kids and families that simply cannot afford pencils or writing utensils. Education gets put on the “back burner” sort of speak for many people all over the world, providing food on the table can be hard enough and it comes down to it, they stop seeing schooling as a priority. This gives kids the opportunity that they didn’t see as possible before.

Painted Wood Art

The Painted Wood Project was inspired by the Kindness Rocks Project having the same idea in mind, to spread kindness through the community. It evolved into painting wood pieces for the children to give to someone who they appreciate and has impacted their life in a positive way. The idea for the Painted Wood Project was to show love and kindness to someone who has shown it to you.
