Here's what she has to say:
In December, we celebrate the character trait of Kindness. To instill this trait in our students, a "Kindness Tree" is in the lobby of our school the week before break. The tree is full of tags with acts of kindness on them. Students are encouraged to select a tag and do that act of kindness within the week. The tree is a huge success with 635 tags taken by students. We emphasize that acts of kindness can be and should be done each day. As well as how good it makes the recipient and the giver feel.
To create the tags, Mrs. Dudek printed acts of kindness on labels and affixed to diecut winter shapes. You could also incorporate the making of the tags into part of a lesson on kindness and have students make tags! Isn't this the coolest? I am so inspired by this idea!
