Fun and engaging SEL activities are essential for a positive classroom community.
Social emotional learning equips your students with positive character traits and social skills they'll use for the rest of their lives.

Kindness activities embed positive values and traits that build friendships based on caring and respect.
Positive affirmations and mindfulness create inner peace and the confidence to try new things.
SEL activities, kindness, and mindfulness help students succeed. They're essential classroom management tools that help teachers nurture wellbeing and a positive sense of self!

My class is K-2 ASD, but during literacy week this year we were paired up with a 5th grade class. Typically, that would be reading buddies, but we had to be creative because of Covid. We decided each student would make a bookmark for their buddy. It was great!
Hilary U. - Used with children with Autism
We used this as a group kindness activity. They worked together with partners to color their posters. We then hung them up in the window for the whole community to see! They loved it! Thank you!
Sharlie W. - Used in Grade One
As a reminder at the end of the school year to be kind I did a bonus guidance lesson using this resource. Very helpful and great conversations were sparked from the ideas given. I will be using it regularly!
Kaitlyn M. - Used with 3rd Grade
I used this resource with our school's Kindness Club. We colored the bookmarks and hid them in books in our library. The Kindness Club members LOVED making the bookmarks, and I've received great feedback from our school's media specialist about the reactions from students who are finding the bookmarks. Thank you so much. 🙂

I used this as a way for my students to bond with their buddy students in a younger grade. It allowed the students to interact with one another while helping to make something to display in the school.

I really liked all the sections of this resource. I like the posters and have pasted them in each child's SEL book. I really like all the work and the quality of Ripple Kindness.
Keryn J. - Used in 1st Grade
My students absolutely loved these decorations that I used for my door! We talk a lot about kindness throughout the year. Once this was all hung up on my door, my students loved the idea that they could each have a piece of 'confetti' and write one way we can show kindness. This will also be great to reference on Random Acts of Kindness week in February.
Taylor R. - Used with PreK-1st Grades with Learning Difficulties
My class have created this beautiful kindness quilt as part of our school's beginning of the year wellbeing focus on relationships and kindness. Every piece of the quilt is different and the words are so meaningful. We still look at it on the classroom wall from time to time, reflect and remind ourselves of the words.

This was a terrific resource with walking through the subject of Kindness with 3rd & 4th grade students as a school guidance activity.

The font and text options were a great addition to this resource. The confetti is a great size that doesn't make it difficult to cut them all out. A nice and vibrant bulletin board to start the year!
Sara C. - Used in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th grades
This resource is the perfect way to have students identify their emotions and consider strategies that they can use to regulate. The fact that the bookmarks are black and white, colouring in the strategy is such a good start to practising mindfulness while thinking about strategies. This resource is so, very much worth the money. It is jam packed with not only the bookmarks, but colouring pages too that younger students could colour during mindfulness time or as a supporting resource to learning. I love this resource!

This resource is an important one to have in my teacher toolbox. I'm grateful for the way it is set up. It is both teacher and kid-friendly. Thank you.
I used the materials to make gratitude centers in the counseling center in Nov. Classes came to me and were grouped into different centers and got to move around. Best lesson ever, and it's my favorite topic.
