Some of you may have heard about the Three Words for Japan project discussed on ABC News. This project basically came about as a way to show support and encouragement for the people of Japan. We heard about the project from our friend Hana, who teaches second grade and has family in Japan right now. The idea was that the supplies, the food, the clothing, etc., while completely necessary, will not really be an immediate fix to the devastation of this natural disaster. However, something we can do to stand with Japan right here and now is to document our support.
Thus, Three Words for Japan videos have been springing up all over YouTube, and this is just the latest installment. You see a lot and hear a lot about my 8th grade students on this blog, but this will give you a sneak peek into Kelsi's 3rd grade classroom. She did this project with her students last week and this is the resulting video of their Three Words for Japan.
