My students are an awesome group of 3rd grade service workers. We are Team Paws! It's our goal to change the world with kindness. Even the smallest kind act can mean a lot; hold the door, smile at someone, use your manners, be humble, and be kind, always.
My students understand that what they do and say matters.
They know their actions can make a difference. As members of Team Paws, they learn we truly do rise by lifting others. Our motto, Spread Kindness, is what makes being a part of Team Paws so special and important. Team Paws is a group of 30 little kids giving back to our community through volunteerism.
For this project, I'd like my kids to use technology as a way to help the homeless. We'd like to make combs and small toys for our local homeless shelter.
Can kids really help--just by learning how to code? Yes! This project combines learning how to code with learning WHY service to others matters.
For this project, I am requesting a kid-friendly 3D printer that the kids will use to make combs and small toys for adults and children experiencing homelessness.
Not only will our 3D printer allow my kids to dive into the world of coding, but they will be doing so in the name of service to others.
Every school year my kids and I collect socks, underwear, and other necessities that we hand deliver to our local homeless shelter.
With your help, my kids can also make items like small toys, combs, and other necessities to be delivered along with socks and underwear.
This is a project that combines learning how to use advanced technology with learning how and why service to others matters.
Please consider supporting my kids as they strive to change the world.
