Create A Kindness Journal On

January 9, 2015

Start the new year off with activities that develop empathy in your students. A kindness journal is a great activity to work on empathy, and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, this is the perfect time to start one. Students can create a kindness journal on which they can add to throughout the year.

Create A Kindness Journal

kindnessTo make a kindness journal, first fill up your buncee canvas with photos of kind acts. Add in links or videos of news and world events where kindness or empathy have been demonstrated. Then, have your students journal how they recently acted thoughtfully, or ask them to write a story of an inspiring random act of kindness. As a beautiful finishing touch, ask the kids to compose a poem on empathy and kindness, illustrating it with drawings, quotes, and stickers.

Students can continue to add to their buncee journals throughout the year, and when the school year draws to a close, each child can present their journal to their classmates. Share it with parents, the school, or local community to spread kindness beyond your classroom walls.
