Build character while helping students practice writing skills with this acrostic poem activity about kindness. Download the Google Slides animation where students will learn how kindness fosters friendship and wellbeing.
The animated video starts with the question "Why is it important to be kind?" and proceeds to list some of the reasons:
- When you’re kind it makes you and other people feel happy.
- When you’re kind people like to be with you.
- When you’re kind it makes people feel like you’re someone they can trust.
- When you’re kind people want you to join in.
- When you’re kind it makes you feel good about yourself.
- When you’re kind it makes people feel like they belong.
- When everyone’s kind there’s no more bullying.
Teachers can stop the video to discuss each statement, asking questions like:
- Describe the feeling you get when someone is kind to you.
- How does it make you feel when you are kind to someone else?
- How does it change the dynamic in a group when everyone is kind?
- What are some ways people have been kind to you?
- What are some ways you’ve been kind to others?
Students are then prompted to use the Google Slides or a printed template to create their own acrostic poem about kindness and caring.
A fun and colorful way to introduce poem writing and practice technology skills.
