Foster social emotional awareness in your classroom...with a focus on kindness and empathy. This resource includes printables that can help begin a discussion about being kind.
A kindness-themed mini-lesson:
This activity is an engaging hands-on activity,which can also include role play of the ideas listed in this file.
Kids fill their buckets with kind words, actions, and other ideas. They can write their own, or cut out the ideas given, or even cut out kind heart buttons to add to their buckets.
The suggested ideas in this file are general. Your students may come up with more specific ones, such as donating to a food shelf, or volunteering at a pet shelter (depending upon the ages of your students.)
This product is designed to spur your students onto greater discussions about being kind toward others. Everyone's buckets make a creative bulletin board display, too!
Simple, easy and fun! My students enjoyed this. I hope yours will.
Thanks for checking this out!
