Warriors Kindness Rock Project

My students need paint pens, river rocks and sealant for this project. Each student at school will get a rock to decorate. Once the rock is decorated it will be sprayed with a sealant.

My Students

At our middle school we have a lot of children who need to be shown extra love and kindness. When they feel like they are loved, they start to outperform their personal best.

Many of our students have been picked on, talked about and bullied.

Bullying or being mean to others solves their social problems. After all, it’s easier to bully somebody than to work things out, manage your emotions, and learn to solve problems. Bullying is the proverbial “easy way out,” and sadly, some kids take it.

When students learn to show kindness to others, they they feel better about themselves! They learn how to give praise, accept praise, and see the good in others. It takes 5 positive words to every negative word to delete a negative comment.

My Project

The Warriors Kindness Rock Project has one simple goal, to promote random acts of kindness by decorating rocks with inspirational words. To incorporate this school wide, the Media Specialist and the School Counselors will collaborate with each other to teach the children to be givers, help build their school community, improve the lives of others and reduce violence and bullying on campus.

We have ordered one rock for each student and enough of paint pens to share in small groups of 4.

Once completed we will design a rock garden on campus. Everyone will be able to enjoy this project.
