Greenlee Elementary School

A Project of Kindness

Posted 02/26/2016

In order to learn and practice kindness to one another, The Four Weeks of Kindness Project was adopted school wide at Greenlee this fall. Classrooms were paired up to show kindness to each other, in secret. One classroom pair was Ms. Lindhart’s first grade and Teacher Laura’s 4 year old ECE class. Each week they snuck into each other’s rooms to deliver something special to make them smile and keep them guessing. At the end of the four weeks, the secret was revealed. Both classes celebrated by sharing donuts and playing together at the park. As a final project they created a quilt by each student contributing a square that they had drawn to illustrate how he/she shows kindness to others. Both students and teachers benefitted from the positive feelings developed throughout this project.
