Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson & Illustrated by E. B Lewis

Kindness is like a ripple.

'Each little thing we do goes out into the world touching more and more people. Each thing we do can be kind, mean or just a missed opportunity. The one certainty is that a kindness can rip through meanness. Kindness interjected at any moment diminishes the ripple of negativity.’ R. L. Brown

This book encourages the reader to look at missed opportunities and negative ripples.

Then when you compare Mary in Ordinary Mary's Extraordinary Deed to Chloe in Each Kindness, you have just open a dialogue for students to really examine what kindness is, missed opportunities and regret.

The negative ripple is caused by ignoring to exclusion to mean teasing. At what point could Chloe have changed this negative ripple? What effects could it have on her and her classmates?

You will need the book, Each Kindness, to read along with this interactive power point.
