Room 22: Each Kindness Makes the World Better!
Our class read the book “Each Kindness” by Jacqueline Woodson. It is about a student who tries to be kind to a group of kids at school and they are not kind in return. They ignore and make fun instead of trying to be friendly. The message we discovered from this book is that sometimes you do not get a second chance to be kind to someone.
After reading this book we decided to recognize the kindness in each other. We do that with a cotton challenge. Cotton behaviours are things that we do that make us feel good inside like smiling, giving compliments and including others when we play. Every day we pick one cotton behaviour to focus on. If we see someone do it, we put a piece of cotton in a jar. When the jar is full, we celebrate our hard work! Cotton behaviours make us feel happy! Kindness helps you to have good relationships with other people. We encourage you to read this book and we hope you learn a lesson from it too.
“Each kindness makes the whole world a little bit better.”
