Puppet SticksCards of Compassion
During the month of December, the Morse School’s core virtue was Compassion. Room B7 read books and talked about what being compassionate means. The students made holiday cards for a little girl named Ruby who’s only wish was to receive holiday cards from around the world. Ruby, who was a patient at Tufts Floating Hospital for Children in Boston, has made the news with her wish. The class talked about how we wanted to make the cards, and voted on making a bouquet of cards to look like flowers in a vase. The students wrote their message on the back of their cards, attached it to a straw, and placed them into a “holder” made from the top of a box. The cards could also be removed from the box and be used as puppets.

CardIn addition, the students made a large card for the entire Neely Pediatric Ward, for all the other children who were patients at the hospital, and the hospital staff. The design of the card was of a woodland forest and forest animals. The words on the card were made with stars and connected with gold lines, to look like the night sky, representing a beacon of light and hope.

On December 20, 2017, the the cards were delivered in person by Mrs. Van Stry. While leaving the hospital lobby, she recalls not only feeling compassionate, but also felt proud and thankful to be a member of the Morse School Community and in the classroom of Kindergarten students from Room B-7.
