Over the next 2 weeks, my 1st and 2nd graders will be learning the song This Candy Has Words from Music K-8 magazine Vol. 22, No. 3. At one of my schools there has been a big focus on character education, especially kindness and compassion. The students will be creating "candy hearts" to share with their classmates. We are taking part in Rachel's Challenge and the students have been creating chain links of kindness which has been going well, but some of the students have lost a little interest in it. So, I thought this would be a great way to re-energize their interest in the Challenge.
