Riley`s pay it forward post

 Part 1
What is "Pay it Forward". To complete this part please edit and revise the paragraphs that you wrote after watching the movie. 

Pay it forward is a movie. in the movie a boy is told to make a difference so he comes up with something called pay it forward which is where someone helps 3 people and those 3 people each help 3 people. Those 9 people help 27 people then 81 and it keeps getting larger and larger. If you don`t get it here is a picture:

2 Why did you choose this activity?

5 When did you do you act of kindness?

1 My pay it forward was that me and my friend Jason made cookies and rice krispie treats for firefighters to thank them for all the hard work they have done in our community.

2 I chose this activity because I know how much the firemen do for us so I decided that they needed to be thanked.

3 I helped the firefighters by letting them know how much we appreciate them.

4 I baked cookies and rice krispie treats for firefighters.

5 I did my act of kindness on November 12, 2011.

1 My act of kindness went good. It was fun.
2 When we went there the chief called all the firemen and paramedics. Then we gave a speech about what pay it forward is about. Then we got a group picture and they gave us a tour of the trucks.
3 I felt like I was doing a good deed.
4 The firemen acted surprised and really excited that we came.
