Today, we really honed in on our goals and hopes for this year’s service learning project. After some deliberation, we decided that we first wanted to really focus on elementary schools because the younger the kids are, the more potential there is to install a love of reading. Luckily, the first school that we called, Jim Thorpe Fundamental, was receptive to our project and we set up an appointment for next Service Learning, February 13, to talk to fourth graders. With a reading officially scheduled, it was time to get to work. We spent a while coming up with a book list with books we felt would be enjoyable for fourth graders. Then, we brainstormed ideas about what we could do for our first appointment to really get the kids interacted and involved. We are so excited for this opportunity to really kick of our Service Learning project, so hopefully it will all go well!
