Fourth grade students in Ms. Mazon’s class and fifth grade students in Mrs. Maddock’s class organized and “classified” supplies that preschool through fifth grade students collected for our pen pal project with students in Kibera, which is in Nairobi, Africa.
Pencils, crayons, small games, pencil sharpeners, markers, stickers, balloons and a backpack were among the items students and parents donated. Once separated into groups, students “stuffed” a suitcase full of the supplies.
Pen pal letters from students in kindergarten through eighth grade were also included in the suitcase.
What an amazing experience – and the pictures show it!
The suitcase will be sent with a person affiliated with the students and schools in Kibera who will visit Africa in January.
