Character in Action


To learn the power behind forgiveness, each first grader wrote about a situation that made him or her sad or upset and taped it to a heavy wooden block.  Then, they presented their block to a friend and put it in his or her backpack.  The friend had the choice to carry that heavy block around all day, or to forgive and thereby remove the weight. They all agreed that forgiving our friends is the healthiest (and lightest) choice! Afterward, they had fun sharing things that made them happy, and then they played Kindness Bingo.
