Kindness Compliment Cats Writing Prompt Cat Craft with Bookmarks
A quick, easy and fun end-of-the-year cat craft, which promotes kindness and caring at the same time building children's self-esteem.
I really like the "Filling buckets" or being a "bucket filler" idea.
We have this program in school, and has been very successful in encouraging positive behavior. Children catch on fast and see how easy and rewarding it is to express sincere kindness, appreciation, and caring about others on a daily basis.
This inspired me to make the "Caring Classmate Compliment Cat Craftivity".
Students accordion fold the template following the lines, which provides wonderful fine motor practice, then they color and glue their cat to the top of their folded paper.
Decide on a direction, and have children pass their "compliment cat" to another child to write something nice about them on one of the accordion-folded sections.
They continue passing 'til everyone has signed all of their classmates’ cats, and end up with their own.
So students get a special compliment from their teacher, make sure you are part of the signing, or write a personal note to each child on the colorful, (4-on-a-page) note.
Add the finishing touch by having students glue a piece of colorful border to the top.
The cats make a wonderful bulletin board, or look cute hung as a border along a hallway wall.
I’ve included two posters for your display.
The packet also includes 5 colorful bookmarks that you can pass out to everyone after they have completed their projects.
I’ve also included a different, black and white bookmark option, if you want this year’s students to color it and then write a note to next year’s kiddos wishing them a “purr-fectly wonderful year”.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me. No matter when you decide to do this activity, I hope your students really enjoy making a compliment cat.
