4th Grade Teacher, Jessica Laskowski, has started a kindness jar. Students who do a random act of kindness during the day are given a marble to put in this jar. Once filled the entire class will earn a prize. This idea was born from reading the book “Wonder” by author R.J. Palacio.
Her other book, “365 Days of Wonder, Mr. Browne’s Book of Percepts” is highly recommended reading for students and parents. It is an incentive to give kindness as well as receive it with graciousness and thoughtfulness. An example from this book is a quote from today, November 29:
”When it is dark be the one who turns on the light.”
