This year’s Red Flannel theme is “75 years of volunteers.” Kindergarten teacher Rhonda Bellamy decided to take that theme and tie into what her students were learning.

“For 75 years Red Flannel Volunteers have given their time to help others in our community celebrate,” explained Bellamy. To connect this theme to student learning, [we] decided to complete 75 acts of kind hands.”

“Kind hands” is one of the Habits of Mind (behavior model) that Cedar Trails focuses on.

“Students were very eager to volunteer their kind hands by helping others take care of their classroom and their school,” remarked Bellamy. “During the week students picked up extra trash in the lunchroom, pushed in chairs, helped others at recess, and some even talked about ways they were using kind hands at home.”

Bellamy painted their hands and they wrote the kind acts on a large red flannel long john and red flannel nightgown.

Last Friday, the kindergarten class recorded their 75th act of kind hands. What a great way to model the spirit of service in the community!
