February 10

Dear Division 17 and 18,

We’ve just finished our Read Aloud “Paper Things” that focused in on the experiences of a pair of siblings who faced homelessness.

For your assignment this week, please consider the things in your life that are made possible or made easier by having a consistent place to call home.

In your post, please list 5-10 activities or experiences that would be more challenging if you no longer had a home.

Be specific, try to be original.  Think deeply.



  1. hockey 101

    I think my skateboarding is made easier, my hockey is made easier, my school work is made easier, my time to hang out with friends is longer and easier, and in general my life is easier and a place to call home is very special, so I try to embrace it. To me, a home makes all this possible and I am thankful for that.
