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. "The dolls were a more concrete way of sharing information." -Tammy Zimmer, Mt. Pleasant Child Development Center.
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. "I like when an Easterseals representative can come and do the [assembly]. The kids listen better and get more from her than they would from me." - Beth Woodruff, Corpus Christi Preschool
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! "As the P.E. instructor, this was something we were able to do very easily in gym class." - Ben Hester, Daniel Wertz Elementary
