Each month, students are taught a new social skill to practice in and out of the classroom. This Christmas season, our class focused on spreading kindness to others.
To begin, students made holiday lights that explained what actions they could do to “light up the world with kindness”. Each day, our whole class completed one random act of kindness, from playing with a new friend to making thank-you cards for teachers around the school. To end our 12 Days, students made wooden snowmen to give to family members. Each snowman was cut to the height of the child and the eyes, mouth, and nose were made with their fingerprints. These snowmen will remind families when their little ones were so small. Finally, students put together “Positive Prank” bags and handed them out to each Eastgate classroom before break. I was so very impressed by their excitement to give!
In a world where you can be anything, be KIND.
