Email Messages from iEARN Schools About our Artwork and Writing

EMAIL FROM BELARUS

Dear Sunnyside School,

I'd like to write you some news from our school about doing the project. As soon as I have got your writing and artwork I showed them to my students of 1st, 3d, 4th, 5th and even 9th Grade. All of the student are delighted with the works. No wonder! They are extraodinary! Really, one can't help amazing sincerity, liveliness optimism of their drawings and writings.The colors of the drawings are simply fantastic! The students' works can't leave indifferent anyone who had a look at them.

My students were so inspired with the works that decided to draw some more pictures and to write some more essays on the topic. We have composed your students'works and ours into an exhibition and organized a presentation of the project for the teachers of English of our city. Next time we shall send you the photos of this presentation. It was a kind of a workshop, because our guests were supposed to participate actively in the presentation. They answered the students' questions about what caring was; what people should care of; what their impressions about the idea of the project were and so on. It was very interesting for both children and teachers. At the end of the presentation we gave to each student participating in the project, a "Certificate of Achievement' as a reward for and the recognition of their work. I designed the certificate together with the computer teacher of our school.

The children were very happy. We have started writing comments to your students. We are plannning to visit our local ophanage and tell the children there about the project, its ideas and aims and to share our views about sense of caring. We think that it will be in the spirit of the project.

Best wishes to you and your students ,
Valentina Demianova, Teacher

money. There are 300 big kids and last night our teacher Mrs. Schellenberg went to Metro and bought 300 notebooks and pencils for the big kids. Our teacher helper Mrs. Zang ordered us 140 Winnie The Pooh Teddy Bears and we had 75 bears so we have a total of 215 bears for the
