How appropriate. January 17th is National Random Acts of Kindness Day!
I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and saw Sandra Boyton’s (the author and illustrator of wonderful children’s books) post about this. If you don’t follow her I would suggest you also receive her little bit of cuteness in your feed now and then.
Here at Aldersgate Preschool our kindness continues to grow. I love seeing their expressions of pride and happiness as we talk about their kind acts and add links to our kindness chain. It’s now almost half way around the office – can we make it the rest of the way?
Our book collection is growing. Reading in the home is one of the best indicators of success for students. Wouldn’t it be great if we could ensure that every Westview Elementary family received at least one book to take home. The basket is in the office. Stop in to make your donation.
Our kids are getting it. They are beginning to truly understand what kindness is, how it feels to both give it and receive it and the benefits of being kind.
I am adding another element to our Kindness Counts project. I would love to incorporate writing into our efforts. Please have your children bring in photos from magazines, etc. that depict kind actions. We will have a large paper similar to the one below for children to add their photo and we will help scribe their words as well. We will have our final product of our Kindness Counts Mural hanging during our Ice Cream Social for everyone to see.
I’ve been noticing quotes and saying about kindness. I posted one in my own home as a daily reminder.
Kindness is magic.
