Kindness is Cool!

I’m always encouraging my students to be kind to each other.  We chant “Kindness is Cool!” as part of our morning meeting each day.  My students and I wanted to do something to help other students in our school remember that “Kindness is Cool!”, so that they would keep being kind to others as well.  We created the idea of kindness hearts.  Each time we see someone doing a kind thing for another person, we give them a heart.  These hearts are to help them remember how nice it felt to do a kind thing for another person.  We also symbolically wound yarn around our hearts (kind of like a dream catcher), so that the kindness would get “stuck” in the heart and would help the recipient remember that feeling and encourage others to be kind as well.

We are currently working on making enough for the school, so that we can give some to each teacher to give out when they see a student or adult doing a kind thing for someone else.  We will also make some extras so that there are plenty in the front office to be passed out by all!!
