The month of February elicits the “warm fuzzies” — all the ooey-gooey love stuff that my third graders make faces at because most of them still believe in cooties. Thank God.
But in the spirit of “warm fuzzies,” we are celebrating February with a Random Acts of Kindness project! In a culture of bullying and girl drama that ages them about ten years, it’s refreshing to spend time thinking about ways we can choose “kind” over less desirable alternatives. We kicked things off with a little help from our friend, Kid President:
THIS is my favorite part of my job. The heart of teaching is hardly about math or science or reading– it’s about the people they’re growing up to be. And in the process, it’s a healthy reminder of the kind of people we– ADULTS– should try to be! Say “please” and “thank you,” agree to disagree, give high-fives, celebrate the awesome… offer someone a surprise corn dog once in a while.
Spread the love!
