We usually do this project during the holiday season. In this activity, teachers assign students three friends to write a kind message about. The teachers should encourage the students to use the character vocabulary rather than physical traits. Here is a link to our character vocabulary list: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Positive-Character-Traits-Vocabulary-List-2639823
After the messages are written, the students cut them out. The teacher creates a paper chain by taping or stapling the messages to each other. Before school lets out, we sit in a circle and read the messages. It is a wonderful sight to see their faces light up. No one knows who wrote what so it makes it even more special!
