Kindness in the Classroom

Wow, quite a bit of time has passed since my last post.  Thanksgiving is near and I really wanted to take the time for a quick post about kindness and giving thanks.  My little group of second graders really is a sweet group, but I have a few that struggle to get along.  I wanted to show my little ones the importance of kindness and how kindness can be contagious.  I shared with them the heartwarming video, Kindness Boomerang on YouTube.  If you haven't already seen it, it is a MUST see.  We talked about ways we can send out positive boomerangs into the world. 
 
I also created bookmarks for each of my students.  I shared one reason I am thankful for each and every one of them.  I wanted to show them a little kindness and let them know that I am thankful for them and each for different reasons.


Then, I had them write a sweet message to another student in the classroom.  They drew numbers randomly.  This was a bit harder, because most of them got the name of someone who isn't necessarily their best friend.  They had to come up with a reason why they are thankful for that person.


They also drew a picture on the back.

I also wanted to share a wonderful infographic that was shared with me by Braman Honda Miami.  They started a digital community service project about simply being kind, and how little acts of kindness can help change the world for the better!  What a wonderful message!!!  With the holidays upon us it is the perfect time to spread a little or a lot of KINDNESS!
