When My Daughter Was In Fifth Grade.......I just thought of this story and shared it with my daughter again..... Each Week At my daughter"s school we had a meeting called "Family Meeting". While my daughter was in the fifth grade at school. We have positive remarks to others and personal statements as part as our meeting. "But" the most popular part of our Family Meeting" is our "Kindness" Award. Students share stories as they have witnessed around school and in our community during the week. We then vote on the most outstanding act(S) and award the student a trophy. "The Fifth Grade Random Award. The trophy stays with the student for one week and then returns it back to the fifth grade the following Friday. In this way we hope to recognise Kindness and focus on the positive, and sow seeds of Kindness around our School and Community. Hopefully they, sprout and grow! I know one thing, The children love to talk about the kindness they see in their world. Too often we center on the negative, so we practice on talking about the, good and positive parts!
