We finished this Lunch Bunch Project just before break, but I have not been able to post until now.
We made these these little books for each student.
I told each student to pass around their envelopes. The person who received the envelope was told to take out a note card and was instructed to write a note of kindness to the person who’s envelope they had received. When the student finished writing their notes, the envelope was passed to the next member until each person wrote a note for everyone in our group. The kids certainly did a lot of writing, and for my group of 25, this took almost 3 lunch periods to finish. To keep track of who wrote a note, the kids put their names on the back of each envelope they finished. This really helped to make sure that every student wrote a note for each person.
This is an example of what one of my 6th graders wrote in my book:
I really enjoyed this project. It was suspenseful, and was appreciated by the recipient. I would definitely rate this as a “do it again” project.
