Second graders from Washington Discovery Academy visited residents at Miller’s Assisted Living on Friday morning, Dec. 16th. Teacher Elizabeth Campbell (whom the children declared was “the BEST 2nd grade teacher EVER) accompanied her students to Miller’s where they sang, shared original poems and gave out presents.
Each child had written a ‘Winter Poem’ and found an adult to read it to. They had printed the poem on a large piece of blue construction paper with a snowman and the poem pasted to it. After reading the poem they allowed their new adult friend to keep the poem. They also then gave them a gift to open. Each person received a coloring book and a package of Kleenex.
The children ended their visit by singing favorite Christmas songs as well as giving out many hugs. The students truly brightened the Christmas holiday for the Miller’s residents. And as you walk the hallways of the Assisted Living you see many of the blue construction paper winter poems hanging on the doors!
