Ms. Barbour visited our class last week and read the wonderful book We are All Wonders by R.J. Palacio. The central message in this book is that when we choose to practice acts of kindness toward others, we pass on both love and hope and inspire others to do the same. We also learned that it is important to have empathy for others who may be different than us.
Each day we have so many opportunities to choose to be kind. We want to join the Choose Kind Challenge at Stafford and see how many kind deeds we can do for others this week. Each day we have so many opportunities to choose to be kind. We want to promote, recognize and celebrate each act of kindness.
Add your kind acts to our Padlet below. Click on the + sign to add your sticky note. Click anywhere outside of the note to make it stick.
We read another book that we loved called Don’t Laugh at Me by Steve Seskin and Alan Shamblin. In this book, we really discovered what it means to have empathy. Empathy means understanding how someone else feels.
