Being Kind

A whole-class discussion starts a lesson all about kindness. Scholars complete a kindness web and finish sentences to describe how showing kindness is helpful to others. Participants reflect on their practices and make a plan to spread kindness. A narrative writing assignment details important finds that will be taken from the lesson.
