No matter where you stand politically, if you are in the classroom, you have undoubtedly noticed signs that the world is sorely in need of a littlemore kindness, empathy, and willingness to listen and learn from each other, even if (or maybe especially if) the other person holds opposing views and beliefs.
I was so pleased to be invited to join a campaign with a group of sellers on Teachers Pay Teachers to create forever freebies for this purpose. We aim to make it easier for teachers to access resources on important topics like kindness, empathy, and civics in order to create positive classroom communities that we hope will extend into the greater community.
All you have to do to find these free resources is go to Teachers Pay Teachers and search #kindnessnation or #weholdthesetruths.
My freebie offering is listed for grades 5 - 8, but if you like to encourage personal reflection and critical thinking, it could work potentially work for 4th as well. It's free, so there's no harm in checking to see if it's a good fit for your kiddos, regardless of age:
What you see below is a small sampling for elementary, followed by secondary resources. More free resources are being added to TpT all the time, so be sure to check it out! You can also check my Facebook page where I'm posting great free resources I find all weekend long!
