Children learn to be a friend to people with disabilities—AND help to fund therapy for local children and adults with disabilities—with the Tools 4 Teaching presents "Easterseals HOP-N-ING!"
Teaching materials, role-playing dolls, and other activities help young children develop an understanding about disabilities. "I like that we can help local children and teach the kids about the importance of helping others." - Carrie Buchanan, Olivet Preschool
Teachers can use the curriculum any week during the school year, and schedule an Easterseals representative for a multi-class assembly. Plus, school groups are encouraged to tour the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center to see how people with disabilities learn to live, work and play independently. "It brings awareness of Easterseals to our school." - Kelly Buttrum, Ann Galbraith, Good Shepherd Catholic School
It’s fun, easy and FREE!
Each child obtains HOP-N-ING pledges from friends and relatives. Pledges can be flat donations or based on the number of times the student can hop in a 3-minute period. After the HOP-N-ING, money is collected and returned in pledge envelopes, which teachers submit to Easterseals within two weeks. Students and teachers can earn certificates, t-shirts, and other fun prizes! "[HOP-N-ING] is so effective and incredibly hands-on and entertaining!" - Kara Hoke, Holy Cross Crusader Academy
The Tools 4 Teaching presents "Easterseals HOP-N-ING" curriculum helps kids learn to help others!
Easterseals supplies all materials, and top fundraising schools have an opportunity to appear on the Easterseals Telethon! Best of all, the funds raised stay right here in the tri-state, helping thousands of people served by the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center.
