Blankets, Buddies, and Brains!
My students have just finished a unit on kindness. I wanted us to share with others and I found an organization in New York (Blankets, Buddies, and Brains) that provides blankets and books for inner city children. I thought 40 sets sounded doable. It proved to be a bit too many for second grade hands to handle. I enlisted the help of some former students, now in high school, a dear friend, and my husband to make 30 sets. My second graders worked with parent volunteers to tie the remaining 10 blankets. Here is a blurry photo of the first batch to get mailed. They really did look nice! We should receive photos from the receiving class in December.
