    My brother is a 4th grade teacher in Phoenix. He had 21 students last year who spoke 8 different languages. Big Lots is offering a grant to the school who put together the best video. The kids created/produced this video to get shade for their playground. Please vote for their cause.

    TeacherSandra- My brother says the kids race to that area when it's time for recess. It really is sad.

    :( yes, that is sad. Wonder where the PE coach/teachers hover? I'd be right under that tree as well!

    Me, too!! Anyone else? :)

    Just a thought....:) There have been 190 views, so if everyone who had viewed this voted three times, that would be 570 votes! What an easy way to work together to make a HUGE difference for these kids! :thumb:

    Voted! I think the coolest thing about that video is hearing all those different languages. I wish my school had some (any!) diversity!
