Building social emotional intelligence is a critical skill your students need to be successful in school and in life. World Kindness Day is a wonderful opportunity to talk with your students about kindness and how even the smallest act can have enormous impact. Whether you send a handwritten card to a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while, have your students write notes of kindness to each other, or just smile at a stranger, there are countless ways to spread a little kindness this November.
