Inspired by Pink Shirt Day, Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) week, the Kindness Boomerang video by Life Vest Inside, and our study of the “One Smile” story, our class set out last week to create our own kindness boomerang. All acts of kindness were thought of by our class and were filmed in one shot! We hope you enjoy 🙂
We have been enjoying the story of “One Smile” and how it relates to the kindness boomerang video.
Mrs. Carriere came to help us learn about this story. Here are some of the connections we made:
This fits in perfectly with our celebration of RAK Week (Random Acts of Kindness) and is a good lead up to Pink Shirt day next Wednesday, February 22. Stay tuned to see how these kindness boomerangs have inspired us to do something of our own 😉
What is a kindness boomerang?
What acts of kindness do you like to do for others?
We have a few welcome additions to our school! The stunning murals that we created with Mary this spring have been put up on our school. I love the colour they bring to the schoolyard :).
We also have a new bench on the playground. This is called a Buddy Bench and can be used by kids looking for someone to play. We were able to get this buddy bench for our school by using money that was donated to us by a local business to promote kindness. This is associated with Pink the Rink for Pink Shirt Day that many of us attended in February.
How does the Buddy Bench work?
Which mural did you get to work on last school year?
To celebrate Pink Shirt Day students in our school met in the gym to create kindness graffiti! I can’t wait to see the final product :). We watched a few videos about kindness and then, as Kid President loves to say, “let’s dance!”
Here is a little project we worked on in our class to celebrate:
As a bonus, the girls in our class decided to create a puppet show to tell us all about how Pink Shirt Day began:
Last night some students in our school traveled with their families to a town nearby to enjoy a WHL hockey game. It was a special night at the arena…Pink the Rink! Even the team had pink skate laces and pink tape on the end of their hockey sticks. This night is in support of Pink Shirt Day coming up on Wednesday, February 25.
We hope to see you at our assembly on Wednesday, February 25 at 11:00am!
Pedagogy is the science and art of education. Here is a collection of some of my personal highlights over the past two years at our school. I am so pleased to be back at our school again in the fall :)!
