## Reflection: Joy Kindness Day Math - Section 1: Graphing Kindness

When students are engaged in a special theme or day, there is nothing better than having them realize that the theme is carrying through their day. The graphing today was focused on kindness.

When I told students that they could move into their groups to work on their graphs, one of the students came up to me and said, "Hey, this is Kindness Math. We are doing kindness math!" She had seen the connection between reading, writing and now math today.  Connections make learning so much more meaningful. If we can give students a connection and a purpose for their learning, they become more invested in their learning.

Today students were very invested in the project. They worked well together, shared tasks, took turns and created line graphs to display how often certain words were chosen by their classmates.
