Someone just shared with me a video on You Tube called Children Full of Life. It’s a 5 part video. (I’ve linked to the first video. A link should appear at the end of the video so you can see the subsequent ones.)

It’s an award-winning documentary filmed in Japan. It features a teacher (Toshiro Kanamori) and his 4th grade classroom. He instructs his students to write letters expressing their true emotions and has them share it in front of the class. It teaches a great lesson about caring and compassion.

Check it out. There are 5 videos. Watch them all.

It’s amazing the lesson these children learn from this assignment. This teacher is amazing too. Have some kleenex ready!

Tell me what you think.
