Make a Kindness Quilt

The Kindness Quilt by Wallace is a great book for kindergarten through grade 2.  It does a great job of explaining simple acts of kindness.  After reading and discussing in my small group, I had each student make their own kindness picture and label it, like the children do in the book.  The teacher then displays this on a paper quilt that starts small and grows.  I have mine hanging in my office.  I try to avoid hanging work students do in counseling in the hallway.  I display student work done in classroom lessons in the hallway.  One teacher read the book and assigned doing the drawing for "homework" just like the teacher in the book. Here is a link to a plan
