Today started off with the Friendship Song, then our quotes were "Kindness is seeing the best in others when they cannot see it in themselves," and "Kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give." Great thoughts to remember! Our challenge was to ask someone about their day and really listen to their answer. For the activity each student is recognizing and thanking another student for an act of kindness. They are putting them on a strip of paper to make a school wide chain of good deeds. A big thanks to Mr. Billie for hanging it for us :) Some of the things mentioned on the chain were: My brother complemented my outfit. Four kids let me play with them. A group of classmates welcomed me into their group when my friends were being mean. When I was lonely someone played with me. Blake helped me clean up my crayons. I was stiing on the buddy bench and a girl came up and asked if I needed a friend and invited me to play. Don't we have some awesome students?
We also had a great bunch of students called up to the office that were caught being kind.
Tomorrow is "Hats Off to Kindness" Day, so students, don't forget your hats :)
