Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson Activities
Kindness in the Classroom is so important, and one of the best books to help teach this is Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson.

HOW TO USE THE EACH KINDNESS UNIT?
You can use it for community building with whole group at the beginning of the year, for writing extensions, to celebrate Black History Month and friendship in February, for small group instruction, and even in work stations. 54 pages total (1/2 PDF for printing and 1/2 in color for Google Slides TM)
WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE EACH KINDNESS BUNDLE?

Each child writes about what makes him/her special and unique and shares tips for new students to help them with school and classroom routines, unique things about the class, and such.
Activity Set 4: Digital unit using Google Slides TM
Everything in the first three sets has been put in color for use on your smartboard or one to one devices. Students can create on the computer and share all files with you electronically for a paperless experience.
HOW IS THE BUNDLE ORGANIZED?
All of my units are organized in a before, during, and after reading format. With this unit, you can pick and choose the activities you'd like and honestly split them up for use throughout the year. As I mentioned, I love using Each Kindness during February in conjunction with Valentine's day, but it's also a great choice for Black History Month since Jacqueline Woodson is such an accomplished African American author. Please check out the preview provided for a close up look. There is a LOT in this bundle.
