Kindness matters. I’m sure you hear this all the time, whether inside or outside of the classroom. The truth is = IT’S TRUE!
I was reading an article on psychology not too long ago and came across this quote:
“When we give we also receive. We should not rely on others to give back to us when we do something nice.”
It turns out, just performing acts of kindness benefit us psychologically and that can help to elevate our positive emotions.

Caring in Your Classroom
How can you show it?! As you may have already guessed, put your (and help your students to) best foot forward. There are tons of kindness and caring challenges out there. Looking for a starting point? The Great Kindness Challenge is a wonderful place to start!!
In my classroom, we’re working toward a kind and caring certificate. However, I believe the greatest reward will be how much my students have done for others by the end!
