It was secret Santa with a twist in Peter Lutz’s fourth grade class at Seaford Harbor Elementary School. Instead of giving each other gifts, students wrote compliments for their classmates, which decorated the room.

Gavin Gungor reads a compliment card that an anonymous classmate wrote to him.

The social and emotional learning activity focused on kindness. Students randomly drew names and completed a #MissionKindness card for each peer they selected. Mr. Lutz said they had to write positive messages, such as character traits they admire in the person. The cards were addressed to individuals, but were not signed. Once the kindness board was created with all of the cards, students then tried to guess who penned their compliments.

“I want them to understand how much of an affect positive words can have on one another,” Mr. Lutz said.
