What a great program! Thanks for sharing Elizabeth Urbanski Do you think this program could be adapted to fit in elementary or high school settings? If so, how? Are there some key challenges and successes you can share from starting the Be A Buddy program?
Love it Denise Webster ! Can you share a picture of your makerspace in your post? What might a kindness corner look like there? I wonder if students could help design some of the sentence starters or even additional ideas to build empathy within the makerspace?
