Thank You for Maker Club

A few of us started a Maker Club on our campus this year.  We have 24 students from 2nd-4th grades who meet once a week after school. We began the year with Global Cardboard Challenge, and have recently been working on making videos.  Their current assignment is to make Powtoon videos that show different ways to say, “Thank You.”

I was checking my Powtoon classroom last week to see if there were any new submissions from the students, and stumbled across this video.  It was not part of the project we are working on.  This student created this video on his own time.

And I cried.

Sometimes (actually, often!)  we put all of our energy into something and have no idea if it’s having any kind of positive effect.

But every once in awhile we are given the ultimate gift – evidence that someone appreciates our efforts.

What a treasure!
