December 2015 Community Project:
Holiday Cards for Hero’s is also a new project for us. This project is now organized by local Red Cross facilities, so if you want to participate, you just contact your area Red Cross office.
The kids decorated and wrote messages in holiday cards and we sent them in to the Red Cross.

-Talked about helping others.
-Learned about feelings (like missing someone, feeling lonely).
-Talked about how things make us feel.
-Shared stories about what things we were grateful/thankful for.
-Learned new vocabulary from the stories we read.
-Talked about who we see during the holidays
-Talked about how not everyone gets to see family at holidays.
-Worked on fine motor skills when decorating cards.
