Encourage your students to engage in acts of kindness. Get them to focus on what really matters every day: kindness! Great for character education ANY time of the year!
WHAT IS INCLUDED:
• “I Am Kind” Flip Books: (Two versions, both in color and B&W.)
Version “A”: Students are given a cover and a blank template. They draw pictures on the blank templates showing themselves being kind in three different settings: at home, school and everywhere. Captions can be added (optional) and then the book is assembled. Great for centers as well!
Version “B”: Students are given a cover and the three blank template pages. They draw pictures of themselves being kind according to the corresponding tab (home, school, play). Lines are provided to write about being kind in each setting. Once completed, assemble. Great for centers or use it for differentiated learning with Version “A”.
• Heart CVC Puzzles:
Print copies of the hearts on card stock; laminate for durability if you wish. Cut hearts in halves (on the line provided). Students match two heart halves to complete the puzzle. B&W and color versions are provided. Great practice with CVC words and can be used all year!
• Be Kind and Make Someone’s Day:
Challenge your students to be kinder for a week. Once they’ve completed an act of kindness, color in the appropriate heart.
Students spread a little cheer by writing a postcard to someone. It could be a classmate, another student in the school, the principal or have your class write notes to seniors and drop the postcards off at a senior citizen’s home. Use your imagination. Who might enjoy receiving a happy note?
• Kindness Posters:
Use these mini posters to decorate your classroom or as covers to create books on kindness.
• Kindness Matters Notes:
Encourage your students to write ‘kind notes’ to friends, classmates, reading buddies, or to thank volunteers and so on. These are great for centers!
• Kindness Matters Game:
All you need is the board game, a die and one cube or bean, etc. (to serve as tokens) for each player. Be the first to cross the finish line – but remember to compliment the other players when you win!
• Acts of Kindness Chart: (Color and B&W versions)
Display this chart in your room to remind students about the different ways they can be kind.
• 3 Art Activities:

• Poem: I Can Make the World a Kinder Place (and Corresponding Activity)
An original poem that gets your students thinking about ways they can be kinder. After discussing the poem, locating rhyming words, etc., brainstorm ways to make your classroom, school, home, neighborhood, or the world a kinder place. Then have students complete the activity, “Making the World a Kinder Place”. You could put these all together in a book for your class library.
