My new goal is go for weekly trash walks. A walk where I fill up a bin or a wagon with trash as I walk. My walk ends when my bin is full. I’ll get a little exercise, maybe some sunshine, and clean up my community!
I shared this goal with my second grade students last year. One student wrote a short story about my goal while basing it on the the classic folktale The Little Red Hen a story that focuses on the value of work ethic.
…. And she lived happily ever after.
Now to make this goal an actual reality. It’s time for me to go for a walk.
