Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Flowering Kindness in Fourth Grade


--by lewski711, posted
Today's RAOK was so cool on a number of different levels:

Last week I asked my students to bring one flower (or more) today so we could create a bouquet for the office staff.

We got WAY more than I had anticipated. There were actually three more vases of flowers after I took this pic.

Then, we all delivered them to the office staff with a Thank You card we all signed letting them know how we appreciated them.

Best part: when we returned, I asked the kids what they got from that experience. they said it made them happy. I asked what made them happy. And, they said making others happy.

I think they got it, that kindness always comes back and that it creates more. Can't wait to see what THEY will do the rest of the month.
