Real-life Super Heroes:
Reaching Pediatric Patients through Caring Fun
This year for “Take Your Child to Work Day” Nathaniel Ross went to work with his Mom at Courtemanche & Associates. He wondered how can children his age help cheer up children in hospitals who are battling illness and injury? Creating activities and games that can be downloaded by nurses, doctors, or even parents that would lighten up children’s lives seemed like a good idea. Realizing Nate couldn’t do the project alone, he invited his fifth-grade class at Alexander Hamilton Elementary School in Morristown, NJ to help spread the joy. Nate’s teacher Mrs. Carey adopted the project. Thinking about the courage of the children in hospitals, the theme “Real-life Super Heroes” was born!
Kids wrote stories, developed puzzles, games, activities and created artwork on the theme to share. They even recorded their own webinar so that the ill or injured children could hear their voices! This website was created where materials can be downloaded and shared or enjoyed via the site. Enjoy these creations and share with any and all who you think could use a little joy in their day!
