"The Kind Machine" is a great song to play to promote a positive classroom community, empathy, and character education! I start out telling children that "I was thinking, thinking, thinking, as my heart was sinking, sinking, as I thought about how people sometimes act." By the end of the song, I decide to transform my body into a "Kind Machine" ... "Guess who can be a kind machine too? It's you, and you, and you, and you! Be compassionate. Show you care. If a friend really needs you, really be there. Cheer people up when they feel down. Spread your kindness all around..."
