Oh my goodness guys—this week has been BEYOND amazing! All week we’ve been collecting books to donate to friends who don’t have any as well as food for Feed My People and our own Robinson Cares Food Pantry. It’s been so great to see how kind and generous kids and families are, and has been great as we’ve been able to use this meaningful topic as we work on our reading, writing and spelling with our chart:
Our conversations all week have included ideas for how we can all show more kindness to each other, and today we added that last idea of making #weekofkindness cards for special Robinson people to show them we care. We started the day with an easel question related to this topic:
We had loads of great suggestions (including several post-its with MY name on them, LOL), and came up with even more and we planned for our card-making. Kiddos decided who they wanted to create for and then most paired up to share some love!
The smiles on their faces as they finished and then the excitement as they came back with stories of the joy they spread to the recipients was over-the-top. This was definitely a GREAT addition to our #weekofkindness activities. 🙂 Spreading kindness makes you all warm inside too!
I am SO glad we did this and wonder if #weekofkindness should happen once each MONTH instead of just once each year. 🙂
