 Making a Difference

The students in Mrs. Callahan’s 3rd grade ELA classes have been reading historical fiction on famous men and women who have made a difference in the lives of others. The students became familiar with the kindness of Abraham Lincoln and the leadership of Jackie Robinson to name a few.

We held many discussions around how we have many good qualities ourselves and how those qualities could make a difference in the lives of others.

The students then participated in an optional yet highly encouraged project where they picked a person they have have made a difference to OR who has made a difference to them. The students got to then choose the format of how to present their project to the class–whether it was through video, pictures, a drawing or even a report. The students creativity shined as they came up with their own  formats as well.–like poems to express their experience.

The students were brilliant as they shared their experiences with making a difference in others. Mrs. Callahan feels lucky to have some exceptional human beings in her ELA classes.
