Our school is a small school on Oregon's central coast. We were lucky enough to have such amazing administration, and team members in our district that they wrote a grant for a SEAL and model classroom design. As part of this grant teachers are able to join a group that helps improve our teaching. I joined this group, and was given the assignment to challenge my students to learn using the community. I have always felt that as a citizen of this world that my community was much larger than just the town that I live, and I want my first grade students to feel that way. So when looking at a project that I could start with my students I came across an article about H2O for Life. I thought this would be a great project for my students to learn about community, helping others, making a difference, and being a part of something bigger than themselves. The main way we are raising money is through a play the students will be putting on. The play is through Bad Wolf Press which is common core aligned. The play is about how we are all different and helping each other. We are so very excited to be able to help out with this project!
