    6. Crafts-make a pencil holder

    Have kids decorate clean coffee can using paint, crayons, markers, or stickers.

    Place holes in lid, big enough for pencils.

    Each child can now have their very own pencil holder for their desk.

    7. Learn a Poem

    One Hundred Years from now (excerpt from "Within My Power" by Forest Witcraft)

    One Hundred Years from now It will not matter what kind of car I drove, What kind of house I lived in, how much money was in my bank account nor what my clothes looked like. But the world may be a better place because I was important in the life of a child.

    8. Making a book.

    Finish up the lesson by having the children look through magazines to find anything teacher related. Allow them to cut and paste these pictures onto Teacher Pictures Page. By the end of the unit the children will have various collages of community helpers/workers that they can make into a book.
