Children can't learn kindness just by thinking or talking about it. This project aims to bring children the value of goodness in life.

Everyday Kindness Project

Marker HO CHI MINH, Vietnam
Students will perform kind works everywhere, such as at home, at school, in public, etc. These actions need to be recorded in photos, videos, kind stories, etc. Therefore, you should work with parents on a weekly basis by sending parents a weekly action sheet. This form will be sent to parents at the beginning of the week and will be sent back to the teacher on weekends.
Introduction

5 WEEKS - 1 MISSION

“Children as well as teens can not learn kindness just by thinking or talking about it. Kindness is learned through perception and then distributed. That feeling is when they are doing the right thing.”

Nam Ngo Thanh

Introduction:

As a teacher or parent, what do you care about when your child goes to school? When asked this question, I received 90% of the answer: "I want kids to have good academic results." This is a perfectly reasonable expectation. However, the school, the family in particular and the society teaches many other things. Sometimes a child's success in the future is not determined by the knowledge they have. At present, in Vietnam in particular and in many countries in general, school violence is happening more and more severely. We are anxious, but there is not much action to take root to end this situation. Personally, I think that once people treat each other kindly, society will be better.

   Scientific studies show that kindness brings a lot of physical and mental benefits, and children need a healthy dose of warmth to be able to grow into healthy individuals, fun and perfect. Children as well as teens can not learn kindness just by thinking or talking about it. Kindness is learned through perception and then distributed. That feeling is when they are doing the right thing. So who will teach children kindness? It's me, weird you and this society. The Everyday Kindness project aims to bring children the value of goodness in life. Join us to spread kindness to the people around you!

   I am proud that this project has had a positive impact on nearly 11,000 students at my school and many other schools around the globe. Parents are also satisfied with the positive effects the project has on their children.

Process: 5 Weeks - 1 mission

*Week 1: Building knowledge

- Students watch videos of kindness (video suggestion)

- Discussion together

   + What is kindness?

   + What actions are considered kind? (Some kind actions you can suggest to your students if they need your help, such as: caring for themselves, helping their parents, helping their friends, scavenging, etc.)

​ *Week 2, 3, 4: Kind action

- Students will perform kind works everywhere, such as at home, at school, in public, etc. These actions need to be recorded in photos, videos, kind stories, etc. Therefore, you should work with parents on a weekly basis by sending parents a weekly action sheet. This form will be sent to parents at the beginning of the week and will be sent back to the teacher on weekends. Parents can send for you photos, videos, their kids' story via email, message,...

- At the end of each week, teachers will review and commend students for doing a lot of good work. I suggested that teachers print their pictures and paste the corner of the class as a way to advertise them.

*Week 5: Skype-a-thon about Kindness

 To help students share the kind work they have done as well as listen to their friends' stories from other classes, I encourage you to participate in the Skype-a-thon week for students to have chance to connect with other classes around the globe. I think that beautiful action should be widely shared. Skype-a-thon is also an opportunity for students to learn the culture of other countries around the globe. You can also have your student connect with another teacher to share if you do not find a class that shares the same time zone.

*Bonus week: Kindness Day (optinal)

In Kindness Day, you call on all students, parents, staffs in your school to raise money, clothes, clothes, food, books, etc. to help children in difficult places. This is the way students learn the way to share difficult with others.
