When used in each classroom or through school-wide assemblies, the Kimochis program helps schools build a strong, positive, communicative school culture and climate.
The Kimochis curriculum can stand alone or enhance and extend an existing character education program. Kimochis lessons teach children to be:
Respectful: Use a respectful voice, face, words, and actions; listen to upset feelings
Responsible: Speak up for self or others; admit and own mistakes
Resilient: Work through emotion alone or with help; bounce back from difficult moments
Compassionate and Kind: Have empathy or concern for others; look for moments to be kind to self and others
