There is nothing like having young kids to turn your attention to early learning. Happily, there is a new resource to share that matches our own emphasis on play and joyful exposure to early math ideas. It is also free and will be free forever.

Kindness Week

Wright Kindess Week

Second grade students Aisha, Kathleen, and Moriah read a book about kindness. They discussed the book with Ms. Racquier and Ms. Henderson and decided on their own that Wright Elementary School should celebrate Kindness Week.The students wrote an opinion essay and shared it with Dr. Choice who agreed it was a great idea. They shared their ideas for Kindness Week at Wright Elementary.

Celebrating Kindness Week:

  • Keep a tally of acts of kindness for your classroom. The class that has the highest number of points gets a class award.
  • Monday - Be Kind to our campus day
  • Tuesday - Write a nice note to someone. It could be a compliment or a thank you note.
  • Wednesday - Be Kind to our SRO/Deputy Blanton
  • Thursday - We can make pictures for people who work in the cafeteria and school custodians to make them happy.
  • Friday - Do a random act of kindness at home. For example, do your chores at home without being asked.
