Let’s Stick with Kindness this World Kindness Day

Use this cactus-themed writing activity on World Kindness Day. Students complete the following sentence starter, ‘I stick with kindness because…’ and then decorate and color the rest of the template and stick it all together. This will create the most beautiful classroom bulletin board for World Kindness Day.
What is World Kindness Day?

✂️ Give Them the (Safety) Scissors
This template makes for a bonus cutting skills activity, depending on your students’ ages and abilities.
With adult supervision, cutting skills help students work multiple muscle groups and their brains, plus:
- strengthen finger and hand muscles
- build dexterity and fine motor skills
- improve hand-eye coordination
- develop focus and attention.
And all of these skills are necessary to use a pencil and a fork; button a shirt and tie shoes; write, type and swipe.
Scissor skills are brain and muscle skills!
