Inkling Monday: What is Your Gift to the World?



Dear Inksters,

Welcome to this Week’s Inkling Monday — the first one in December!

While Thanksgiving is connected with sharing what we are grateful and thankful for, December tends to be a month when we think about giving gifts. I think about gift giving a lot in December because there are a lot of December birthdays in my family and because we celebrate Christmas. Others think about gifts as part of their Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or Boxing Day. But, I am usually thinking about which gift to give a particular relative or friend.

Today’s Inkling asks you to think in larger ways about gift giving. Here’s the question:

If you could give a gift to the world, what would it be?

You can think of the world as the entire world. Or your neighborhood. Or your town. Or your school community. Or any community you are a part of.

  • Write about your gift in your Writing Journal. What would you give? Why do you choose to give that gift?
  • Design a sign that advertises or shares with others your gift. What materials would you use? What colors would you write in? What tools would you use to write your message — crayons, pencil, pen, paint, stickers, magazine cut-outs?

Remember to share your signs and ideas right here on Inktopia Kids!

Happy Writing! Happy Giving!
