Random acts of kindness pictured on a paper quilt

Minna and her classmates have been asked by their teacher, Mrs. Bloom, to work on a Kindness Project. Mrs. Bloom wants them to do and draw and share an act of kindness. Minna and her family do lots of kind things, but Minna can’t decide which one is right for her project. Then she starts writing and drawing and cutting—and an idea for a paper quilt picturing many acts of kindness begins to take shape!

Important lessons about being kind to each other are depicted in NANCY ELIZABETH WALLACE’s charming artwork using origami, recycled paper, markers, crayons, and colored pencils.

I have been teaching K4 for five years at my current school. I enjoy finding new ways to help my students learn, and love to help them celebrate their successes, big or small, every day. Working in a low income school is both rewarding and challenging. Each day is an adventure, and I encourage my students to try their hardest, be kind and thoughtful towards one another, and support their classmates. I have created a learning environment where my students feel safe and are comfortable asking questions and participating. My third grade teacher was my inspiration to become a teacher, and my hope is to inspire my students to be the best they can be every day.

My class is amazing, and very big this year! I have 8 girls and 11 very active boys that are 4 and 5 years old. They love to read and get very excited when new books are added to the classroom library. Most of my students come from under privileged homes and have very few books to read outside of school. Four of my students speak another language besides English for their primary language.
