Lesson 11: We Can Be Kind

In this lesson, students will learn that a kind act is something they can do to help someone feel good. They’ll practice suggesting kind acts to do for people in different scenarios.


You Can Try This at Home

Encourage your child to think of a kind act they could do for someone, for example a sibling, grandparent, or neighbor.


Lesson 12: Why Kindness?

In this lesson, students will learn that kindness is a way to show people that they care and that doing kind acts can make both the giver and the receiver feel good. They’ll share personal examples and discuss how they felt when they gave or received kind acts.


You Can Try This at Home

Help your child think of a kind act they can do for someone and support them in carrying it out. With your child, discuss how they think the receiver of the kind act felt. Ask your child how they felt doing a kind act for someone.


Lesson 13: Showing Kindness

In this lesson, students will practice two kind acts: asking, “Would you like to share?” and “Would you like a hug?”


You Can Try This at Home

Encourage your child to offer to share items at home. For example, have them help you make a snack and then offer to share it with other family members. Encourage them to offer hugs to family members or friends when they are tired or sad or need encouragement.

 

Lesson 14: Kindness at School

In this lesson, students will learn different ways they can show kindness at school. The class will share ideas for kind acts they could do for one another.


You Can Try This at Home

Ask your child to tell you about the kind acts they and their classmates have been doing for one another at school this week.


Lesson 15: Demonstrating Kindness

In this lesson, students will show what they’ve learned about kindness and the power of kind acts to help people feel good. They’ll draw themselves doing a kind act for someone at school.


You Can Try This at Home

Ask your child to show or tell you about their drawing of doing a kind act for someone at school. Encourage them to draw a picture of themselves doing a kind act at home too.
