Are you worried about your kid's
It's well documented that friendships are essential for happiness and wellbeing.
Your children need Emotional Intelligence (EQ) so they understand how important kindness and empathy are for building and maintaining relationships based on respect.
Having strong emotional literacy helps kids understand their feelings to control anger and reduce stress and anxiety.
Equipped with coping skills, kids can calm down and feel better, so they don't lash out and hurt others.
Positive affirmations and mindfulness creates inner peace and the confidence to try new things.
These important life skills can be learned in fun and engaging ways. When students can see and feel the benefits, it's easier to adopt the positive character traits that help them to thrive.
Save your precious time for teaching and fostering warm connections instead of endlessly searching for SEL resources for your classroom or home.

LOVE From Teachers Who Use Our Resources
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
I used these little posters for Pink Shirt Day. I printed them out on pink paper and gave copies to the school Justice League. They each completed 1 to 2 posters and then I hung them around the school, so that we had a sea of pink for Pink Shirt Day.

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 the Ripple Kindness.
Keryn J. - Used in Grade One
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
This was a terrific resource with walking through the subject of Kindness with 3rd & 4th grade students as a school guidance activity.
Bill H. - Used in 3rd and 4th grades

Beautiful resource with lots of options! Used to decorate a bulletin board in our front lobby to go along with our school Acts of Kindness Challenge. Catches the eye! Lots of compliments on it.
Sarah P. - Used in K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th grades
Nice sized posters - convenient to print from home. I used coloured card-stock for some and plain white for others so we could colour them in. Nice messages. Easy enough for my kindergardener to read with a little assistance.
Amanda W. - Used in Kindergarten
Growth Mindset Coloring Pages
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.
Kimberley W. - 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th grades
Gratitude Activities Bundle
I used these posters when talking with my students about being kind and how we can show kindness towards others. Keeping them on display in the classroom is a helpful reminder to the students. They would also be great to display in the hallway for all students to view.

My students loved these. We used them during our character traits unit. Since my school doesn't celebrate Valentine's Day, I used these as "kindness coupons in a "treasure chest" hung on their desk -- fun.
