Description

Inspirational quotes are a fun way to mix up your morning meeting, research project, or kindness activities. Use these positive quotes cards with a kindness theme as reading comprehension passages and questions, a thought-provoking writing activity or create a kindness bulletin board for Random Acts of Kindness Day or World Kindness Day.

There are 84 different quotes about kindness to nurture a growth mindset. Print onto colored card or white paper for coloring and use as writing prompts, print two sets for a memory game or have students practice typing and computer skills by composing their own quotes using the blank templates in Google Slides. Teachers can also use the electronic file to create their own set of quotes.

With a kindness theme, the cards will enhance your character education toolbox to improve social skills, nurture relationships, and reduce bullying.

Quotes can also be helpful discussion starters for students with autism or other special needs to improve friendships and add to their growing set of positive character traits.

How to Use

There are so many ways to use the kindness quotes cards. Here are a few ideas but I’m sure you come up with a lot more of your own.

  • Select a quote to discuss as a class. Ask students to share what they think it means or how they can relate to it. You can also pair students to work together or have a small group discussions.
  • Quotes can be a fresh idea for your morning meeting or a quick and easy filler.
  • Use as writing prompts. Ask students to write a paragraph about the quote’s meaning or make up a sheet of questions for them to answer about the quote you’ve chosen.
  • Ask students to rewrite their quote in their writing journal and decorate with illustrations that depict it’s meaning. You can also have them make posters that can be bound into a class book to display on open houses.
  • Use your quote in an art project. Place the quote in the centre of a bulletin board and have students each contribute a drawing or word that relates to it.
  • Give each of your students a different quote and ask them to create a poster for your classroom or to put up in the hall.
  • Ask your class to research the author of the quote and write a short biography about them or ask them to find another meaningful quote by the same person.
  • Have students rewrite a quote or two in their own words.
  • Ask students to memorize one or two of their favourite quotes to recite to the class.
  • Ask students to rewrite a quote using synonyms.
  • Use two quotes that complement or contrast one another and engage students in a compare and contrast discussion.
  • Give students the first part of a quote and have them make up an ending for it.
  • Select a quote to discuss and ask students to share how it relates to them.
  • Read a quote to the class and ask students to share the first thing that they think of when they hear it.
  • Put students in groups and assign them a quote to make a one or two minute “commercial” to sell the message.
  • Ask students to think about the meaningful advice they have been given by the adults and make up a quote that relates to it.
  • Ask students to submit their own made up words of wisdom to be voted on for submission to the school newsletter.
  • Print two copies of each quote card and laminate to use as a memory game.
  • Use the electronic file to create a new set of quotes
