HELPING TEACHERS INSPIRE COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS, PEOPLE & THE ENVIRONMENT
Begin the kindness week by discussing the phrase:
- Is being kind important, and if so, why?
- Who (or what) do we need to be kind to? Is there anyone/thing that doesn’t deserve our kindness?
- What are some examples of kindness that you have witnessed or have heard about.
- Who is positively affected by acts of kindness (the giver, receiver and even witnesses can receive the benefits of a kind act!)
Before embarking on the kindness week challenge, decide how you will demonstrate your accomplishment. Here are just few ideas.
Upon completion, have students reflect on the experience. How did the week go? What did they learn? Feel free to use our reflection questions to get your students thinking!
