In April we celebrate Children Around the World.
We started with our Big Book Atlas.
Then we studied the world, talking about children everywhere.
Look at our arms – we are all different, yet much the same.
We made cards to send to children like us.
Oh, we made many, many cards.
And, children still wanted to make more.
Decorating the outside of the card was fun!
Knowing these cards were going to children around the world
made their artwork on the outside of the cards special.
Children wrote words. They started with
“HELLO FROM (NAME)”
They wanted to write more words.
Next they wrote,
“HELLO FROM GROTON MASSACHUSETTS”
Writing Massachusetts is really hard to do!
Some children wanted to write even more,
adding their own “I LOVE YOU.”
Why is this important?
Making a card to send to someone is
all hands-on, creative, no technology needed,
and most importantly it spreads a heartfelt message.
Am I bringing back writing cards and letters
and connecting people the way they should be connected?
You bet I am!
