Children Can Make a Difference

Two classrooms that I work in, decided to do a service project before Christmas. Keeping the goals of  Think Good Do Good in mind, the teachers had students design place mats to give to seniors to use over the Christmas holidays. The place mats were made by the kids and were bright and colourful. The place mats were laminated so as to last more than one meal. The teachers delivered them to two different seniors facilities in time for the holidays.

Kids doing good deeds just to cheer someone up. They also had fun doing it!

That was a great way for those children to end 2014-making someone else’s life happier.

What can you do to make the works a better place? How will you teach your students that service to others matters?





Charter Of Rights and Freedoms Grade 3

 Declaration of the Rights of the Child

The class spent a lot of time reading about children in other lands as well as studying the United Nations Rights of the Child. We talked about wants and needs and how needs can impact your life if taken away.

We then studied the work of Dustin Milligan. We read his books, on The Charter for Children which introduces children to the principles of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. imagesSDUB2O6I

As a culminating activity, children were divided into small groups. They were given a sentence to describe one of the rights and freedoms in the Charter. Each group had to illustrate the area they were assigned to. This was made into a big book and also shared with other classrooms.
