Act of Kindness Poetry Writing Lesson
Whether you are incorporating Kindness into your start-of-year activities, celebrating National Kindness Day (annually on Nov. 13) or National Random Act of Kindness Day (annually on Feb. 17th), or participating in The Great Kindness Challenge (January 23 – 27, 2023), this lesson will get your students thinking and writing about important moments of kindness in their lives.
Students brainstorm and write original poems based on a personal act of kindness they experienced. The activities were designed for and have been used by students in grades 4-6, but are easily adaptable and relevant for grades 2-8. If your students are ready to write a poem based on a real experience (memoir), they are ready for this lesson.
Unit includes a 12-page PPT Slideshow to accompany your teaching plus 5 printable PDF pages (instructions, graphic organizer, word list, final poem template, and model poem handout).
