Topic - Hauora - Our Well-being


Kindness Games

Building kind citizens is an important goal. Studies show that kind people are not only happier, they are healthier.

Kindness
is like a muscle. For some it may be naturally stronger, but every
person can build that muscle with practice. And practicing kindness can
be simple if we build it into our routine. Here are some ideas to get
your routine started:

Be kind to each other each and every day. Say hello, good morning, and goodbye with a handshake, high five, or hug. Ask others a question about their day and listen actively.

Show
kindness in your words and actions. Take opportunities to get to know
each other and learn to work together. One fun way to do this is to play
cooperative games. Here are seven 
fun games. Ask your teacher if you can try them. Click on each one to get the rules instructions.
