Kindergarten Practices Kindness

Ms. Ellen Lawrence’s K5 class at Macon East Academy has been learning about the importance of kindness by practicing giving compliments to others.  The class has been using their Amazon Echo to listen to examples of compliments and discuss how compliments make others feel. Room mother, Mrs. Amy Redoble, recently visited her daughter Abigail and classmates and directed an activity in which each student picked a classmate’s name and thought of a compliment for that friend, then wrote it on a colorful heart.  The students revealed their hearts and shared the compliments for their friends.  The hearts were connected with the addition of a head to make a “Compliment Caterpillar”.  The completed project was displayed in the hallway for others to enjoy reading and perhaps pass on a kindness of their own.
