Please welcome our Grey Fox Class with today's Blog Post in honour of 'Random Acts of Kindness Day', which is coming up on February 17th! Our Grey Foxes are in grade 3 and 4 and wrote this together with the help of their teacher, Ms. Zoe. Way to go, Foxes! What do you think - can you help add to their list?
February is a time to celebrate love, friendship, and family. It is a time to give thanks for the wonderful people in our lives, and to think about how we might share love with others. With ‘National Random Acts of Kindness Day’ soon approaching on February 17th, the Grey Fox class has been looking into ways to spread kindness all around. After all, kindness is infectious! Let the kindness challenge begin! Here is the list that we came up with; let’s see how many of these you can practice this month!
-Offer to help someone
-Hold the door for someone
-Listen to others
-Show respect for others
-Practice GRATITUDE! (give thanks for the people in your life and show your appreciation)
- If someone drops their things, help them to pick them up!
-Help to cheer someone up if they are sad
-Hugs!! (with permission)
-Buying a meal for a stranger
-Babysitting for adults so they can have a night out
-Offering to take a photo for someone
-Giving to charity
-Manners…”Please” and “Thank-you”
-Cleaning up the house (before being asked!)
-Helping a sibling with something
-Helping to cook dinner
-Giving someone a bus ticket or paying their bus fare
-“Comfortation” (term coined by the Grey Foxes that’s means: to have a comforting conversation or moment with someone) :)
Can YOU think of any others?
