Helping Hands Project

This whole school year has been dedicated to kids making a difference in the lives of others.  When Kate, my partner in crime, asked me if I wanted to join her class in a service project this holiday season, I immediately said, "Yes!"  Kathy, our teammate, joined us and we now have the whole fourth grade working together to help those in need.  We decided to make no-sew tied fleece blankets to give to the local women's shelter that gives women and their children a safe place to stay.  I was hoping to connect with other classes who are doing similar projects.  Hence, the beginning of the Helping Hands project.

Here is the plan...

  • The group is open to all classrooms who want to share their thinking and their work with others.  You can share via blogs, Skype, Voice Thread or any other way that fits your needs.  
  • I began a group on Edmodo called Helping Hands.  The code to join is qlglas.  You can also access the site at http://edmodo.com/join/99c7716f4272c118a6e76f2f11035835.   If you've never used Edmodo before, it's easy to sign up and get registered.
  • As you read great books, work on projects or share your thinking, connect with others on Edmodo.  You  can set up a time to connect that is convenient for all parties.  I've already heard from a couple of people who are doing great things and my class is so excited to share with them.  We will keep Helping Hands open until the end of January. 

I'm launching the unit with Fly Away Home by Eve Bunting.  It's one of my favorite books.  I hope that we can connect with lots of people!  Please join us.
