So many acts of kindness observed this week…it was refreshing to watch the world through the eyes of looking for kindness, especially in my 2nd grade classroom. 7 & 8 year-olds are amazing, especially when you are purposefully looking for the positives. We did a “word goal” activity and every child put something about being kind and helping others in their action steps, even those who chose reading wan to help friends become better readers!
We’re driving through Tampa this morning, listening to music on our way to our son’s soccer game. My husband put on some music and Jars of Clay was playing. The song “Like A Child” came on and it reminded me of all that we’re learning about getting back who we were as children before the world jaded us and changed our outlook…and in the middle of the song, you hear some little girls say “Be kind. One to the other”
That says it all.
