A meaningful way to teach empathy, love, and kindness to students of ALL ages! Pair this lesson with any picture book where the characters speak and act unkindly. I always use , but there are so many other books out there that serve the same purpose! Have students cut the heart out before the lesson and discuss how there are no wrinkles. Tell students to crumble the heart as you read if they notice unkind actions or words. At the end, try to smooth the heart out to be “wrinkle-free”. Discuss how the heart can never truly be the same as it was at the beginning. Fill in name on the back, and recite the kindness pledge together! J
