Laugh and Learn with Mrs. Thomas and her Kindergarten Class

Mindful Actions

This was our last session of Mind Up with Mrs Nadon. Students planned ways to work together to accomplish acts of kindness. Some ideas built on what happens at school already, such as recycling, composting and school grounds clean up. But as Grade 1’s, students thought they could welcome the new Kindergarten students when they saw them on the playground. What great ideas! This has been a wonderful experience for myself and my class, thank you Mrs. Nadon.

Together Is Better

Together Is Better

When one person holds a flashlight in the dark, one spot is illuminated. When many people hold flashlights in the dark, an area is lit up. Imagine that one beam of light is an act of kindness. The more beams, the brighter the light. When acting kindly together, it can make a difference. Next week, Mrs. Nadon will talk about putting this into practice. What do we already do as a group to be that bright light?

Kindness. It is something that we may not think about often but expect it all the time. Kindness is as easy as a smile. Students worked on a ‘Kindness Plan’. They drew a picture of doing something kind for someone. By the end of the day, every student had completed their plan.

Sharing Kindness

Mrs. Nadon shared a book and song by Naomi Judd titled Love Can Build A Bridge. In the story, children were helping other children. When people help others, they are sharing their kindness. This week students are to use their detective skills to look for kindness and answer these questions: What does kindness look like? What does kindness sound like? What does kindness feel like?

Gratitude Tree

Carter & Isabel Cutting Leaves

Carter & Isabel Cutting Leaves

 We began the first part of our class project, which is growing a gratitude tree. Students cut out leaves while thinking about what they are thankful for. Specifically, things they are thankful for that cannot be bought in a store. Next week, we will finish assembling our tree and sharing our ideas.

Expressing Gratitude

gratitude cropWe are thankful for Mrs. Nadon spending time with our class. Students learned the connection between being thankful and showing gratitude. When showing gratitude, students have a feeling of calm optimism. For homework, students are to practice showing gratitude by saying “Thank you for…” to 5 different people this week.
