KIND IS COOL actions through children’s eyes
Acts of kindness will transform your classroom into one of peace and joy, as children build self-esteem and develop empathy for one another. With self-acknowledgement and the ceremony of sharing their kind deeds weekly, they witness these feelings as common human nature and experience the joy that acts of kindness can bring into their lives. As they share this experience with their fellow classmates, they embrace their uniqueness and unity is fostered, creating cohesive harmony within your classroom.
