    I’d love to get my students involved with a day of service and possibly extend it to a service activity for the rest of the year. What do you do with your students? I’ve thought about adopting a soldier, but I’m curious as to what others do too.  Thanks in advance!

    I have a “Book Donation Box” in my classroom where parents can bring in and donate gently used books that their kids have outgrown.  We then add up how many books we have to donate at the end of the month and graph it.  The students then decide where they’d like to donate the books.  I even have former students’ families donate books, so we get quite a collection each month.  We’ve donated to women’s shelters, homeless shelters, children’s hospitals (outpatient), etc.  It’s been very successful and the kids LOVE seeing their old books being given to kids who need them. =)
