Service Projects at School

The holidays are upon us and you know what that means, right?  Get ready for the  "gimmes" and "wannas" .  I want this for Christmas and I hope Santa gives me that for Christmas.  This is the perfect time to do a service project with your class.  It is a reminder that there are people who need our help.

I like to do service projects in which my students are helping other children.  My favorite service project is to collect gently used or new books, toys, or art supplies for the local children's shelter.  Contact the shelter about their rules.  Some shelters have you drop off supplies at another place because of security concerns.  

It is never fun to be sick.  Being sick at the holidays is especially hard because you are missing out on so many fun holiday activities.  Collecting books, toys, and art supplies for a Children's Hospital is good way to let these children know that your students are thinking about them during the holidays. Don't forget about your local Ronald McDonald's House, too.  Kids helping kids is the best service project to me.
