The number one thing I have learned through my teaching experience is that kids do not always know how to be kind. We need to explicitly teach them. The number one questions I then ask myself is "How could I possibly fit this in with all of the other tasks I need to do?"
We practice Morning Meeting at our school and this resource has become a part of that and our regular routine. it is quick, easy and extremely meaningful. I have included topics that are "real" in the classroom and gets your kids to truly reflect on themselves and their actions. My kiddos LOVE it and kicks off their day with kindness every day. Not only that, but they are now more intentional with their kindness goals.
One more reason why I love this is that you can bind it at the beginning of the year or end of the year. Students can keep this as a reminder of how they spent their year and practiced kindness in the classroom.
36 weeks scenarios, prompts and reflections that will get your kiddos to think intentionally about the best way to handle certain situations, how they would want to react, how they should react and the consequences if they react a certain way, These provide rich discussions and will enhance classroom community.
