From there I took students pictures of them thinking. They brainstormed about how what they want to do when they grow up could help others. Students loved the quote from the book that said "I believe in words not fists" and that drove the point that their words have power. It matters what you write, and when you write your thoughts down they become real.
They are just the sweetest in their responses. It's easy to do this job when you get to be around these kind of kids all day!
