Last week our class joined the 2017 Global Kindness Project. This project, started by The Educator Collaborative, will run through the end of our school year and we have to agree, it’s a great time to remember what kindness and gratitude means to each of us!
Week 1 addressed the question, what is kindness? Each day we used Padlet to share our thoughts and reflections. We tweeted these each day using #GKP17. Here are a couple of our tweets:

We are also very excited about our connection with a class in Prague, Czech Republic! We “visited” their school using Google Earth. It looks very lush and green compared to here! The time zones are too different to Skype, but we created this video to introduce ourselves to our new friends.
Week 2 was all about gratitude! We continued using Padlet to share our thoughts and reflections. We also tweeted these hoping to help spread the word of kindness and gratitude!

We are looking forward to next week when we will be learning and reflecting on empathy!
How do you show kindness and gratitude?
