K is for Kindness Activity

Looking for easy-to-implement social and emotional learning activities for your classroom? These mini-lessons may be mini in size, but deliver a big impact.

Activity: In this activity, students consider all kinds of ways to be kind. They listen to K is for Kindness, a fun alphabet book filled with animals doing various acts of kindness. They learn that kindness can take different forms—whether in helping, giving, or showing affection. The examples in the book serve as a starting point for them to discuss their own experiences and reflect on the impact of being kind. At the end of the lesson, students design their own pages for a book!
