Kindness in the Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Research shows that even very young children have innate tendencies to be kind and that the joy from being kind boosts levels of happiness. Even though kindness is an innate quality, it needs to be fostered, modeled and practiced. How can you foster kindness in your classroom? Join us to learn why kindness is important and how it can be supported through things such as teacher modelling and universal design for learning (safe spaces and classroom routines). We will provide resources and ideas that can help you support your students. As well, we want to provide an opportunity for you to share your own experiences, activities, lessons, websites, etc… that you have used to foster kindness.
