“One of the most difficult things to give away is kindness; it usually comes back to you!”
Thankfulness. Counting your blessings. Appreciating everything you see and have. Acknowledging simple pleasures. Having an attitude of gratefulness shifts our focus from what we lack in life to appreciating what we presently have in our lives. A study by two psychologists, Michael McCollough of Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, and Robert Emmons of the University of California at Davis, concluded that giving thanks daily makes people happier, more resilient, creates stronger relationships, reduces stress levels, and improves overall health.
We must be intentional if we want to develop a grateful attitude in ourselves and our students. Journaling or listing out five things you are grateful for every day is a simple and easy way to develop an attitude of gratefulness. We have created a simple printable gratitude journal for you to use with your students.
Let us know what you and your students are grateful for by posting a comment below or sharing with us on Facebook and Twitter.
It's never too early to teach kindness and empathy. According to several studies, the earlier children are taught to be kind to others the better off they will be in the long run. A recent article Why We Should Teach Empathy to Preschoolers, explains that children exposed to empathy earlier in life have greater and longer-lasting emotional benefits than those exposed to it later, or not at all. The article suggests that children who are taught social and emotional skills (as opposed to purely cognitive skills) in preschool and kindergarten have better social skills and fewer behavior problems in both kindergarten and first grade, compared with kids who don’t experience a holistic classroom setting.
We agree! The 21 Day Kindness Challenge has developed a wonderful set of tools to help early education teachers teach their students how to be kind and to have empathy. Our program, the 21 Day Kindness Challenge: Classroom Edition is perfect for preschools, K-6 classrooms, youth groups, and other small learning environments. The program is full of 21 days of kindness activities, lesson plans, and projects to encourage kindness. Our themes focus on kindness, compassion, gratitude, and caring. The program is designed for K-6 but can easily be modified for early childhood development classes.
Teaching children to be kind doesn’t just make help them emotionally and socially, it also helps them become more successful later on. A recent study from Duke and Penn State found that students who were able to share and help others in kindergarten were more likely to graduate from high school and have full time jobs. Empathetic people are also more likely to help those they don’t even know – to pay it forward.
