T-Shirts for ALL!

My students need vinyl and a heat press to create custom t-shirts for a community walk placing Kindness Rocks. We also need the cardstock to create signs explaining how to spread kindness with the kindness rocks.

My Students

My students are young inquiring minds that need resources to become global learners. They are a diverse group and excited to work as a team. Our school is one of four C.F.I. Magnet Schools in the Indianapolis Public Schools. We are focused on inquiry based learning through reading and writing workshop. Part of our mission is to develop socially responsible citizens in a changing global society. Our urban setting allows for multicultural experiences in our immediate neighborhood and beyond. My 2nd grade students are eager to be hands-on in learning experiences! Hands-on learning creates engagement.

My Project

What better way to show kindness than to wear it on your chest when delivering Kindness Rocks throughout the community.

The Cricut Easy Press and vinyl will be used to make t-shirts for 22 students.

We will be placing Kindness Rocks throughout our community and the shirts will make us visible and also be our billboard! The yardstick and other materials will be used to create posters near the rocks so that people will know to take one and pass it on. We can't wait to get creative with our materials and put to use items from 2 past Donors Choose Projects!
