I love to have my students write nice notes to different people in their lives.
This could be other staff members at your school, their families, other kids they play with who aren’t in your class, the crossing guard, etc.
In their notes, they could express thanks, say something they like about that person, or record a fun memory they had with them.
This teaches them the beautiful simplicity of showing kindness to those around them.
They learn how a simple note and brighten someone’s day.
Here’s a fun tip. Encourage your students to stealthily deliver their notes so that the person will find it and be surprised by their thoughtfulness.
