I read the book Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson, which taught us that kindness is like a stone dropping into water. It ripples out into the world getting bigger and bigger. This then led us to learn what a ripple is so we could really visualize our kindness getting bigger and bigger. Then we took some time to reflect on our own lives and think of ways that we have shown kindness to people in our lives.
My students might only be 6-7 years old, but they are making this world better by the little acts of kindness they do. To remind ourselves that we can change the world with each small kindness we show, we stuck our kind acts to our globe.
I love helping your children become readers, writers, scientists, and mathematicians, but I also love helping them become more caring, compassionate, empathetic little humans.
