We did an optional project this week during recess. For this project we discussed our different needs and how we get them. We also talked about how many people don't have all of their needs. When that happens, it is a problem!
My students are caring, thoughtful individuals, and through our conversation, they identified that many of them have seen people who don't have all of their needs. This turned our conversation into: what are our needs and how can WE help people who do not have all of their needs met.
Our answer: care packages for people without homes.
This is what we came up with.

I'm so proud of the love and kindness my students show to each other and to people they will never even meet. They are never lacking a kind word or a thoughtful gesture!
