Third graders make "Boxes of Hope"

The 3rd graders at Kensington Elementary have been working on Boxes of Hope for their classmates. At first we pulled names from a bucket to see who are secret buddy would be. Then we wrote 5 terrific things about that person, created a poem for that person, wrote letters of hope and inspiration for our buddy, and then we drew an illustration of them or things they like. The best part was when we made a handmade gift for them at home. This project gave us a chance to learn more about our Box Buddy. We enjoyed this project because we want to bring hope and inspiration to each other for the holiday season. We will be exchanging our gifts and revealing ourselves to our secret box buddies on December 20th before we leave for winter break. We wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season.
