“We often wait for kindness...but being kind to yourself can start now.”

“One of our greatest freedoms is how we react to things.”

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

 So far this year has been quite unusual and even challenging for many families around the world. Most children (especially, the younger ones) will remember the overall sentiment around them during these times more than anything specific about the virus or other events. It's a great opportunity for us to show our children that no matter what's happening in the world, all of us (including them!) can make a positive difference in the lives of others. 

We have attached two different resources to promote wellbeing - they can be for the whole family or individuals!

Below is a Free Printable from Big Life Journal on how to make a difference in our communities. 

This week's PRINTABLE includes the "We Rise by Lifting Others" poster you can use as a window display activity. 

While your children are making the poster, discuss the meaning of the statement and how it can look like in everyday life. 

WATCH HERE how to assemble the poster.

Here are some other ideas for your children to inspire and help the community: 

Decorate rocks with encouraging growth mindset statements like "You got this!" or "Keep going!" Leave the rocks in mailboxes or around the neighborhood for people to find.

Write colorful messages on neighborhood sidewalks, such as "You matter" or "We're in this together."

Start a book exchange. Create a free community library using a bookshelf, cabinet, or even a storage box for toys. 

Organize a neighborhood food pantry. Fill the box with non-perishable food, personal care, and paper items. Leave a sign encouraging neighbors to take what they need.

Check out all the details and find images for inspiration HERE.

 Take Care,

Mrs. White and Mrs. Samuels

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

 We have been thinking over the past week about kindness and the many benefits it can bring; including increased happiness, a healthy heart and a positive mindset which in turn improves relationships with our family and friends.

Linked below are various activities your children can do on their own or as a family.
