Help Wanted

42VolunteersNeeded_jpgLooking for some ways to help in class or at home? Read on!

The take-home work is on the counter next to the door. Just pick up a project and bring it back in a day or so. A sample or directions will be included.

In class help has many options. For example:
Mondays- collect library books from students
Daily- put notices in student cubbies
Weekly- lead a small group activity; sharpen pencils
Monthly- check in student homework; prep new homework packets
Occasionally- assist with special art, science, or technology projects; be a guest reader (or listener)

Here are some in-class projects that I have planned:

O.R.E.O cookie project- we’ll be stacking, measuring, and graphing Oreo cookies in a nationwide project.
Symbolic Monarch Migration- we’ll be decorating paper butterflies and sending them to children in Mexico as we learn about migration.
Tulip Garden- we’ll be planting tulip bulbs and comparing our observations with other classes around the world through Journey North.

Donations needed: Oreos (4 packages); tulip bulbs (24 or more); potting soil and a barrel.

There are many more projects in the works, including Twitter and Skpe; but I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself. Let’s just say that you will be amazed and eager to join us.

  1. Hello,
    The projects sound great! I don’t have a barrel, but I do have a plastic planter that once housed a small tree. It should be sufficient for the bulbs.
    Is this a Spring project?
