This week we are celebrating, along with the entire nation, Random Acts of Kindness!
Kindness is something you do for someone else. It’s not a requirement, like a chore, homework or practice but takes a little bit of extra action. Complimenting a stranger, giving up your seat, or sharing a treat are all super examples of kindness. It is the ultimate act of self defense!
We encourage our students year round to keep track of all the kind things they do every day. We log them into the student website, keep a daily notebook or simply write them on any scrap paper. This helps us to be mindful of what we do and aids us in noticing when others our kind to us. We read Kindness sheets in class to give us all ideas in ways we can be kinder to others.
Students who log the most Kindness Acts in a testing cycle are awarded with our Action Hero Patch!
Would your child’s classroom benefit from an infusion of kindness? Please talk with us about our school kindness challenge. It’s simple: students write down all their Acts of Kindness, over a one-week period on supplied sheets, and then turn them into their teacher. The class with the most acts turned in wins a pizza party at their school! Individual students can earn medals! The challenge can be completed by an entire school, grade level or individual classroom. We provide all materials and incentives! Our instructors are happy to schedule a visit to your school to talk about the importance of kindness.
