KINDNESS

Community Meeting

2-4-6-8

Note: This Community Meeting is used best after completing Community Meeting “What Does Kindness Look Like.”

Greeting Objective

The learners will greet each other with kindness using a rhythmic beat.

Directions

  • Students sit in a circle.
  • The student being greeted walks the inner circle “high-fiving” all students while the chant is being said.

Use the following format:

Class: “2-4-6-8, Alyssa is kind and that is great! Good Morning Alyssa.”

  • Student sits down when the chant is over and that student stands for their turn.
  • Continue until everyone has been kindly greeted.

Kindnessville

Note: This engagement activity can be used throughout the entire week.

Engagement Objective

The learners will demonstrate acts of kindness.

Directions

  • Students stand in a circle.
  • Designate one side of the room as Kindnessville.
  • Make a list of ways they can see, hear, and show kindness to all living things on a T-Chart.
  • One student will be the “mayor” of the town and their job is to show kindness to all the guests. (The “mayor” stands in Kindnessville.)
  • The “mayor” demonstrates an act of kindness from a card that has been drawn out of the “Full Bucket” from CM11.
  • Students repeat the act of kindness. New “mayor”, designated by the teacher, goes to Kindnessville and picks a new card.
  • Students continue to demonstrate acts of kindness until all students are at Kindnessville.

Inform

End your community meeting by informing your students about the schedule of the day.
