How to teach kindness? Start with an empty wreath.. have family send in odd and ends of ribbons.. when you oberve your students caught in the act of kindess, add a ribbon to the wreath! Let them choose the color and help them tie it.. as the year progresses, watch the wreath become more and more colorful!
