As children grow and socialize, it is important for them to recognize, respect, and celebrate the similarities and differences between people. We want to prevent children from relying on assumptions or biases that will influence their perceptions of other people and their relationships with them. We also want them to learn from an early age that we have to hear someone’s story to really know who they are. We want children to value themselves and their connections to others, and to appreciate everyone’s unique qualities.

OVERVIEW

Students learn about the similarities and differences between themselves and their classmates through an interactive game. Short narratives about people with diverse backgrounds and life experiences will be read aloud. Then, students are asked to draw a picture to share something that is special about themselves.

OBJECTIVES

Students will be able to…

 identify ways in which they are similar to—and different from—their classmates.

 understand that it can be fun and rewarding to recognize different identities.

PURPOSE

It is imperative for children to develop their emotional vocabulary so that

they know how to identify and express their feelings. When children are

able to describe how they feel, it helps them to manage their feelings and

life experiences.

OVERVIEW

Students share how they are feeling. Then, they sing a song to help expand their vocabulary for identifying feelings. While discussing real-world scenarios, students think about how they would feel in those situations. Then, they learn some strategies for managing their feelings in healthy ways. Finally, students make “feeling” pictures to illustrate an example of when they have felt a certain emotion.

OBJECTIVES

Students will be able to…

 name at least four emotions.

 use their facial expressions and body language to demonstrate at least four emotions.

 identify at least three ways to manage their feelings in a healthy way.

KINDNESS FOR ALL

This is the second lesson from our Kindness for All resource guide for educators like you. This seven-lesson curriculum is designed for three-to-five-year-olds and aims to inspire children to act with kindness toward all living beings and the natural world. By implementing this curriculum, you will be playing a vital role in young children’s lives, helping them to value kindness while you nurture it within them—which ultimately leads toward the creation of a more compassionate, equitable, and restored world for all.

The development of this guide was made possible through a collaboration between Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers (HEART), Social Compassion, and

Volunteers of America Los Angeles.
