IMWAYR: Books on Kindness

Monday Linky from Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers!


My favorite book to read in class in Wonder by R. J. Palacio. It's a wonderful chapter book chronicling Auggie's, a young boy born with a facial deformity, journey through school and the adjustments he, his family and his classmates have to make.  I love that it's told from so many different perspectives.  If you need a close reading guide, get one here!

Another great book is Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun by Maria Dismondy.  It's about a very unique girl named Lucy.  Ralph keeps making fun of her.  One day though, Ralph needs help and Lucy decides to help him out.  Cute story- nice illustrations.

A great picture book is Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodsen.  She is such a talented writer.  Beautifully written tale with a powerful anti-bullying message.  Here is a read aloud lesson plan.  It's $1.

I also do Kindness cards with my kids every year.  Kindness cards: learning about kindness and friendship through complimenting each other.  Best of all, it's a Freebie!!

Kindness is such an important theme to teach in your classroom.  I hope these resources help.  I love these books!!!
