Celebrate World Kindness Day!

Instead of recognizing Friday the 13th this week, consider focusing on World Kindness Day instead! This day is a chance to focus on and celebrate the many benefits of practicing kindness. By creating a caring environment in our homes, our schools, and our communities, we give children the opportunity to establish positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and handle challenging situations effectively. kindness

Research shows that kindness does improve behavior and academic success. And did you know that kindness exponentially fosters more kindness? In a similar study, researchers have shown that a single act of generosity can influence dozens more; in other words, kindness is contagious.

If you are interested in working this idea into your lesson plan, or even just for an activity at home, take a look at some of the great resources available from The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, which include lesson plans, activities, and other projects.

Share your plans to celebrate World Kindness Day within your family or classroom… and keep the kindness spreading!
