Kindness Buddies

This week, 2nd graders were super stealthy kindness buddies! As a class, we read the book What Does it Mean to Be Kind? and brainstormed things we can do here in class to show kindness to others. Then, each student picked another student’s name out of a hat to be their super stealthy kindness buddy. Their task was to complete one act of kindness for the other person by the end of the day. They kept it a secret, slipping in compliments, favors, and kind words all day long. Finally, at the end of the day, they had a big reveal and each student found out who their secret buddy was! "We had a blast and it kept the good vibes going all day long," said one teacher. Check out the pictures for a sample of some of the kind things they did for each other.
