A few days ago, I shared this video with our class:
We loved it! Parts of it reminded us of the standing ovations we give to students, and how good that feels when you are the person at the front of the class. We were inspired by this video to find ways to help students too. We decided to give Millgrove students a great ending to their day, and lined the hallways on the way out. You can see some of the reactions in this video:
Not only did the Grade 2’s enjoy their goodbye, but the Grade 4’s had a great time doing it too! We decided to keep the ball rolling. We weren’t alone! Some other PSD classes were also inspired by the Students Helping Students video to perform random acts of kindness. Mrs. Dickson’s Grade 3 class decided to change the Twelve Days of Christmas into the Twelve Days of Kindness. It was such a good idea we chose to use it too.
On our Second Day of Kindness, we turned our attention to some teachers and administrators. Mrs. Stumbur was surprised to get cheers and applause for coming down our hallway. Mr. Couros not only got a standing ovation, but also a sweet treat!
What’s next? Stay tuned to find out. We’d love to hear your ideas for some random acts of kindness during this season of good cheer. Leave us a comment!
