Product Description
After several years in the classroom, I realized that my students needed instruction on HOW to be kind, respectful, and all the things I was asking them to be. I developed these units to support teachers in teaching and rewarding great character in the classroom! Building a classroom community is one of the most important things teachers can do and it greatly impacts our students academically! This unit on KINDNESS is part of a year-long curriculum for teaching students how to have great character! However, this unit could also be used as a stand-alone resource for teaching kindness in the classroom. :)

This packet includes many activities and lessons to teach your students kindness!

In this packet, you will find 4 detailed lesson plans on kindness, as well as additional printables and resources!

Lesson 1- What Is Kindness?
Your students will watch a short video about kindness and then discuss it as a class and create an anchor chart to remember what it means to be kind! Then students will draw and write about kindness.

Lesson 2-How Does Kindness Look?
Your students will review kindness and then talk about how kindness LOOKS (what things we DO to be kind). Then you'll introduce a Kindness Catcher and notes for students to use to "catch" their friends being kind!

Lesson 3-How Does Kindness Sound?
Your class will read Kind and Unkind Words, sort them, and discuss it! Then they'll create a super cute craft with a self portrait and examples of kind words they might say to their peers.

Lesson 4-How Does Kindness Spread?
You will read a fabulous read-aloud with your class (or watch the video) about kindness changing the world. Then your students will brainstorm some ways they can be kind and create a craft titled "I Can Change the World With My Own Two Hands"

Each lesson plan has a detailed explanation of what the teacher should say and do. :)

This resource also includes:
-An original poem
-A parent letter that explains the unit and how parents can support it at home
-One Act of Kindness writing page
-Dear Friend writing page
-Goal setting page
-Kindness poem (for students to complete their own poem) \
-Kindness flipbook


I truly hope this unit makes it much easier for you to build character education into your day!
