Want to bring more kindness into your classroom? This is how you do it.
Because we can’t host a Kindness Assembly once and think that will do it.
We can’t just hang kindness posters and anti-bullying posters and call it a day.
We can’t read one kindness story and check it off our list.
If we want to raise kind kids, teach kind kids, and help our community speak and act with kindness more often, we have to be consistent. We have to make kindness a habit.
In schools, we celebrate 100 Days of School.
Why not add to the day and add 100 Days of Kindness?
Encourage your kids to do one small act of kindness each day, one from the list every day. Things like inviting someone to sit next to you, greeting the custodian, returning a lost item after recess, picking up trash that’s not yours, offering to share school supplies someone else needs.
Students can use the accompanying record sheet to mark it off and color in a star.
And then on the 100th day of school, they’ll have been 100x kinder than on the first day of school.
You can award them the included certificate of Kindness to praise and recognize this positive behavior.
And then, you can start up again and challenge them to continue to do at least one act of kindness every day.
This digital product includes color and black and white versions:
- 100 Acts of Kindness kids can do at school
- Recording sheet for them to keep track of their acts of kindness
- Certificate of Kindness
Encourage more kindness by making it an assignment in your classroom to do one small, normal, everyday act of kindness each school day.
100 days of kindness x 20 students = 2000 acts of kindness by February.
And more importantly, you’ll have “trained” 20 students who see how easy it is to be kind, how fun it is to be kind and how good it feels to be kind. You will help create a generation of kids who are kind because they can be.
What an incredible way to help change the world.
