Just a fun way to get back into the swing of things after a long Winter break!
I plan on using the kindness bells in different ways:
I plan on making a bell for each student prior to their return from break, each kindness bell will include a characteristic that that child possess that brings kindness into our classroom, for example, "Sally's walks in the door every day with a smile on her face. She is positive and always willing to help a friend." I plan on stringing them together and putting them up for all to see as they enter on the first day back.
Then I plan on giving each child a couple kindness bells and having them write kindness compliments to other students in our classroom.
Both are going to foster that sense of family within our classroom.
I have included:
-- A brainstorming map
--2 Stationary Pages
--Blank Bell, primary lined bell, and a lined bell (for writing compliments or acts of kindness).
--a few bells with cheesy fun quotes on them
--2 half-sized pages to use later on in the year (to revisit the activity without printing oodles of bells)
**I made each page a FULL 8.5x11. I printed them TWO to a page allowing me to string them together with ribbon**
