This little freebie will help you spread some Christmas kindness throughout your classroom AND create a cute, colorful bulletin board for the month of December! Make copies of the light bulb template you wish to use with your students. (There is a template for writing and one for drawing.) Copy the light bulb on various colored construction paper OR let the kids color the light bulbs. Place the bulbs in a common classroom spot.
Hang a piece of string on the bulletin board. Allow students to complete and cut out a light bulb when their classmates do or say something kind for them. They will write the name of the friend who showed kindness at the top and explain the act of kindness on the bottom. Staple or tape the light bulbs to the string and see how many lights your class can fill up on your bulletin board! Or, see how far around the classroom your string of kindness can spread. It would also make a cute school wide kindness activity. Suggested titles include: Christmas Kindness and Our Hearts Are Bright! I hope you enjoy this Christmas bulletin board and character activity!
