Serving and Learning from a Young Age

Eye on Early Education – Irene Sege

“…Students in Lunenburg and Hudson collected food for a local food pantry. In Medway, students grew crops from seedlings and created compost for a local community farm. Students in Leominster created a book about playground safety and shared it with other classrooms…What these projects have in common is that in each case the students were in kindergarten or pre-kindergarten. The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) highlighted them at a recent full-day kindergarten networking conference. They are all examples of service learning, which ESE defines as a ‘method of teaching and learning that challenges students to identify, research, propose and implement solutions to real needs in their school or community as part of the curriculum.'” (more)
