Ms. Downes Wishing Tree

Ms. Downes Wishing Tree

In Ms. Downes second grade class, a wishing tree has grown. This is not an ordinary wishing tree, instead it is a tree for students, parents, and teachers to share their wishes for their class, friends, and family.  In front of the tree you will find a picture that asks, parents, students, and teachers to write a thought they want to share and add it to the tree.  Participants are asked to write down a wish or a quote and tie it to the tree to watch their Wishing Tree grow.  What a great way to share with students that wishes don’t have to be tangible, thank you Ms. Downes for bringing encouragement and fun to your second grade class.
