The holiday season and the incoming New Year is always a time for reflection. Bellmore second grade students in Eileen Consiglio’s class at C.A. Reinhard utilized their writing skills to reflect on the changes they would like to witness worldwide for a writing project called Our Magical Gifts to the World. The students illustrated their poignant writing and decorated the hallway’s bulletin board for peers to read.
The students were given the prompt, “If I could give a gift to the world…”
Some of the themes included in the students’ writing were:
• No one would be poor and everyone would have enough food.
• No one would get sick and everyone would be healthy.
• There would be no more extinct animals and all animals would be safe.
• Everyone would always be honest and show integrity.
