Is there a cutting edge to teaching mindfulness and kindness? If there is, then junior kindergarten at MJDS is definitely on the cutting edge of this new movement emphasizing the importance of learning and reinforcing these skills at a young age at school. Check out the link above for a great article that just yesterday appeared in the New York Times, all about teaching kindness. The kindness curriculum that is mentioned in the article is the same curriculum we follow in our class.
Happy Chanukah and Shabbat Shalom!
