This school year I have started a new Christmas tradition in my kindergarten classroom: visits from The Kindness Elves.
The tradition of The Kindness Elves is a positive twist on the popular "Elf on the Shelf" idea. Visits from The Kindness Elves place a focus on positive, character-building activities for kids, teaching love, kindness and gratitude - exactly what I want to focus on most during the Christmas season with all of the children in my life.
Inspired by Anna, fellow mama blogger at The Imagination Tree, a set of elves made their way into my classroom making their first visit this past week, exciting my kindergarteners with inspiration and guidance for kind thoughts and actions.
The Kindness Elves, who in my classroom are named "Kit" & "Jory" are planning on visiting my students each Tuesday during our class morning meeting time. I will be working with them and my kiddos on projects and activities focusing on spreading acts of kindness in our classroom, school, community and homes.
This am excited to start this new tradition in my classroom and I am even happier to share this giveaway:
In partnership with Anna at the Imagination Tree and I have an opportunity to give away one Kindness Elves set to a lucky reader.
