There are still a couple of weeks left in school for 2016, which means there are several days left for your students to help bring joy to others. If your classroom isn’t doing a gift exchange, consider doing a “Joy Exchange.” Each child could write a note to the other students in the class, telling them what makes them each important. Using ribbon from a craft store, you could tie the letters into a nice package and deliver them to each student on the last day of school.
If your class is considering doing something for others, there are great examples online of students and adults working together to help others this holiday season.
For example, check out this cool article about the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder and their partnership with the United Way to bring kids some joy this December:
Share with us @CEValues: how are you inspiring students to share joy this month?
