The Kindness Book
The Kindness Book is an educational resource for primary school teachers to introduce the topic of kindness in classrooms. The book invites children to recall small acts of kindness with each other through drawing and writing.
By using the Kindness Book, children come to learn how acts of kindness travel through a community. It's also a great resource to use over a whole school term or year.
Each child gets a space in the Kindness Book to write their story. the book is passed from student to students, thereby creating a chain of interlinked stories.
This is how the Kindness Book works:
1. The first student thinks about a moment of kindness with a friend in class, documents this moment through drawing and writing, and passes the book onto the friend that was mentioned in the story.
2. This friend then writes about another moment of kindness and passes the book onto a third student.
3. The Kindness Book is passed from student to student until the book is full.
