kindness wreath | add a ribbon for each act of kindness you catch a student doing throughout the year
Teach Kindness: Start with an empty wreath. When you observe your children being kind add a ribbon. They get to choose the ribbon to be added. Let the 'kind-child' choose the spot on the wreath for their ribbon to be tied. If they can tie it on themselves even better.

Lesson plan for Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson. Chloe and her friends won’t associate with the new girl, Maya. Maya is different. She wears used clothes and plays with old-fashioned toys. Every time Maya tries to play with Choe and her friends, they reject her. Eventually, Maya plays alone, and then stops coming to school altogether.
