“Character strengths are ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving that come naturally and easily to a person and that enable high functioning and performance.” (Linley, 2006)
We have begun to explore our character strengths in Autahi and we have begun by unpacking kindness.
We have been reading some books that make us think about ways to show kindness and examples of other showing kindness.
We brainstormed lots of ways we can be kind to each other and fill each other's buckets.
We then started making kindness coupons for people in our class and for our family.
|My kindness coupon is for Archie and it says I will play marble run with you.|
One of the things we discovered about being kind is that it makes other people feel good, but it also makes us feel good too!
