Spreading Kindness Campaign

This project is a variation of the Kindness Rocks Project. Instead of painting kind messages on a rock, students will write notes to encourage and uplift each other. The purpose of this project is to show students the power of kindness and encourage them to spread kindness to others. Once everyone has written their notes, students will read them aloud to the class before hanging them up on a kindness wall in the classroom. The kindness wall will be designed and put up by the teacher before students complete the activity.

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.

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.
