This month at Cottage Lane we are focusing on compassion. “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” ~ Dalai Lama At today’s assembly, we discussed the meaning of compassion and how we can show compassion in school, at home and in the world. Our Compassion Cards will encourage us to perform random acts of compassion. From the Buddy Bench to Jump Rope for Heart, our compassion can make a difference in the lives of others.
Our book of the month, Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson, gives a lesson about how even small acts of kindness can change the world. The main character realizes the lost opportunity for friendship and thinks about how much better it could have been if a little compassion was shown toward others.
