In addition to academics, I try to teach my kids kindness. I feel like that's one of the most valuable lessons they can learn. Today we packed backpacks to send Mexico. I explained to them that the supplies were going to children who have much less than we do. As we are going through our school supplies, I found some items I had purchased to put in their Easter baskets. I made it their choice if we could include those in the kids backpacks. Each and every child in my classroom agreed to sacrifice their Easter present for a child in need! They even went through prize box and donated our stuff animals.
