Teach your students to practice acts of kindness during the holidays or any time of year. Promote a focus on giving from the heart through actions or words and with no attention to price tags or labels. Just givr, as is communicated so beautifully through The Mitten Tree (Christiansen and Greenstein).
There are five acts of kindness plus a bonus! Grab your copy of The Mitten Tree by Candace Christianson and teach character analysis, retelling, and vocabulary. Use the five acts of kindness to teach your children that giving doesn't have to cost anything. Giving from the heart is a way to help build community in your classroom.
