Instructions For The GKC - Virtual Classroom Edition Checklist
Some acts of kindness on the GKC - Virtual Classroom Edition checklist refer to special activities and projects which are explained in detail below.
Scavenger House Hunt Game
Take 5 minutes or less and go find something in your house that makes you feel happy. When all classmates are back from their “Scavenger House Hunt,” take turns showing the item you each found and explain why it makes you feel happy.
I Am Poster
Complete the sentence, “I am ___________________!” Write your “I Am” statement on paper or poster board and then decorate your poster. Share your finished poster with your classmates. Proudly hang your poster in your home.
Get comfortable in your chair. Take a long deep breath in through your nose. Hold it for 1-2 seconds. Exhale slowly through your mouth. Repeat 4 more times. That’s it! This exercise can be completed as many times as you’d like throughout the day.
Make a heart from any object and tape it to a street-facing window to send your love out to the world. Encourage all your friends to do the same. Then, in a few days, take a family walk (keeping 6 feet distance from others!) to search for other hearts on houses. Watch the love grow!
Virtual Game of Tag
Invite your students to play a game of virtual tag! The object of the game is to learn about our classmates! Select a category and share a unique response (no repeats!).
The teacher will start it off by naming a category (for example: a favorite place).
The teacher will then call out one student’s name and say, “Tag, you’re it!”
That student will unmute and give a response to the named category (for example, “Hawaii”) and then call out the name of another student who has not yet been chosen, “Classmate’s Name, tag, you’re it!”
That student unmutes and gives a unique response to the category and calls on a new student, “Classmate’s Name, tag, you’re it!”
This continues until all students have been called on and have given their unique response to the one selected category.
