Remembering September 11th~ A Day of Service

Hello Friends!
This past week was the 13th anniversary of September 11th. For my third graders, I wanted to focus on "A Day Of Service" in memory of this day.
So we read this book: September 12th~ We Knew Everything Would Be Alright

Have you read this book? It's a wonderful collection written by 1st graders. And it is a book of hope!
After reading the book, we brainstormed how we could serve others.
Then, we invited a first grade class over to our classroom. My third grade friends read a short book and poems from their poetry notebooks and our first grade friends read a poem.
Here are some pics~
After our younger friends left, we wrote a reflection on serving others. These kids did an amazing job.

How did you recognize September 11th in you classroom?
