New for 2016-2017: Creative Compassion Corner

How can we use our creative talents for good?  How do we instill a community of kindness?

This year when students finish a project early, instead of free draw students will now go to the Creative Compassion Corner to work on a project that will give back to the community.  They will get to choose from a binder of twelve art-based projects.

The station is set up to give students the opportunity to work independently and choose what creative project interests them most.  They choose a project and each binder has detailed instructions for each one.

By doing this, I am hoping to show students that their talents can always be used to do good and to create a classroom environment that instills the idea of kindness.

Middle school students will get to choose to either work on their sketchbooks or a project at the Creative Compassion Corner if they finish an in-class project early.  4th-5th graders will only have this option.

I love this idea! I can't wait to see some of the projects that the kids create.
