I work at a school in a low income area. A lot of our students struggle with social-emotional skills, including kindness towards peers and adults. This project was inspired by Conscious Discipline’s Kindness Tree and the silhouette trees from the KinderCraze blog. Every time someone in our class does something helpful for someone else, we add a heart to the tree. The goal is that we would see our kindness grow over time. As the kindness grows, the color grows as well. And when it is too full, we take them down and start again! This tree is my favorite part of my classroom. Not only does it draw your eye immediately upon walking into my room, but it also has such a special purpose for the kids in my class. I used the Astrobrights Paper to cut out the hearts for the tree. The color stands out really well against the black tree. The whole projects really brightens up my classroom!
