Today I took a short, slow run between school ending and my youngest getting off the bus. My colleague joined me on the little jaunt and it was rather lovely. It was a great way to unwind and reflect on the week. I got to talk about my little holiday break countdown kindness calendar, which ended up as a chain, that we developed in my classes today. It was inspired by this blog post I saw on Facebook this morning. My students really got into deciding which 11 kindness acts they wanted to put on the chain and it really warmed my heart to see their interest in my idea. Today they chose to “Forgive someone that you’ve been holding a grudge against.” Fantastically inspirational!
