One of the ways we focus on everyday kindness is discovering ways to lift up others, making them smile, changing their perspective. As teachers, we do this in simple ways. We greet our students at the door by name. We share a shout-out of praise for a job well done. We make a point to acknowledge ways our students are nice to others and how they help in the classroom.
Our students have the same power to impact others! One way they can let their kindness shine is by sharing their positivity through posters. During our winter party, students worked with parent volunteers to create colorful, personalized posters of kindness after brainstorming and researching quotes online.
When we returned to school in January, we brainstormed locations around the school we could hang our posters to have the greatest impact. We came up with so many places!
Students worked in small groups to add tape to their posters and hang them around the school. From the cafeteria to hallways to water fountains, we sprinkled inspiration of kindness everywhere!
