This month, I feature some music you may have heard and a website you might like. The two go together, but you will need to make this a multimedia moment. First, start the YouTube video, below, so you can hear the music from The Alternate Routes.
If you would like to read the lyrics, point your browser to The Alternate Routes website.
Next, click this link http://www.newtownkindness.org/ and visit Newtown Kindness. The link will open in a new window so you can listen to the music as you explore the site. Newtown Kindness is an organization dedicated to teaching students to be kind and recognizing those who are kind in any of many ways. The site honors Charlotte Bacon, who died at Sandy Hook Elementary School, by turning tragedy into hope. Maybe you and your students will want to become involved by supporting therapy and comfort dogs, taking a kindness pledge, or engaging in a lesson about responding with kindness. Watch the video below to learn about some of the recipients of the Charlotte Bacon Acts of Kindness Awards.
Heroes don’t look like they used to, they look like you do. -The Alternate Routes
