Good afternoon everyone,
I sat and pondered the importance of PSHE and kindness this morning and decided that I’d create a ‘kindness calendar’ that will take us from 8th March to 1st April (when we break up for Easter). I think for a lot of children, they’re going to need a lot of help regulating emotions and learning to be sociable again. I know that I am going to have a big focus on being social and interacting with each other again once we come back.
There’s loads of examples of kindness calendars out there and this is nothing special, but I figured (as I do with all of my other resources), this might be of use to someone, so I’d share. There’s just a daily ‘kindness’ challenge for each day of the remainder of the Spring term. If this is popular, I’m sure I could make a kindness calendar to go along with my Maths and PE calendars too (so please do let me know if this is something you plan on using!).
I’ve created it in black and white and in colour too – so download as you see fit.
My idea for this is to put it on the board at the beginning of the day and tell children that’s their kindness challenge for the day. If I see kindness in action, I’ll add a marble to the kindness jar and then we’ll get some kind of reward if we show kindness throughout the rest of the weeks.
I hope this is of use to someone!
As always, I’d love to know if this is any use to you! Feel free to download, share with parents, put on your websites or your online learning platforms! But please don’t put this on any websites claiming them as your own – a little credit (either of my blog, my twitter @eenalol or my instagram @thisgeordieteaches) goes a long long way! Please spread the love and share this as far and as wide as you wish! Us teachers need to stick together in hard times like these!
