As part of our positive education and looking at our character strength of Kindness we have been reading the book, "Hands are not for hitting," and we have been discussing what hands are good for.
We know that what we focus on flourishes so we have been thinking about all the kind and helpful things we can do with our hands and we are trying to spot each other using our helping and kind hands.
We came up with some ideas and practised what we can use our hands for.
Hands are for high fives
Hands are for drawing and writing (in the air)
Hands are for a pat on the back to yourself or a friend when they've tried their best
Hands are for a rub on the back if someone is feeling upset
Hands are for hugs
We also did some writing. The writing was fun because we actually wrote in the shape of a hand! It was a bit tricky figuring out where to start and which way to write, but we came up with some awesome ideas about what we can use our hands for.
