PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This idea was inspired by The Kindness and Justice Challenge proposed by Martin Luther King III and Coretta Scott King in 1999 through an organization called DoSomething.org. The intent of the challenge is to keep Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream alive for children following MLK Day and into the future.
The resources in this packet may be used within your own classroom, grade level, or school. Students receive a “brick wall” page and begin collecting data on acts of k & j that they do. Each time they do an act of kindness or justice, they write a sentence on a brick about the act.
The completed pages may then be displayed on a bulletin board or wall in your classroom or on a wall in a school hallway.

On  October 16, 2013I am Bullyproof Music (TpT Seller) said:
This is so beautiful! There is a Chassidic tale (don't ask me how I know) that this reminds me of. The folk tale says that when the world began it was just a great big ball of light. Then something happened and the ball was shattered into zillions of little bits of random light. Every person's job and duty in their life time is to find their little piece of light and add it back to the ball until we are all whole and one again-- put back together. That story has always touched me deeply. This touches me too. It's as magical! I'm thinking it's not just for the classroom. It's for home and maybe government offices? *just kidding*. Ten stars for the light!
On  October 16, 2013Rainbow City Learning answered:
I actually know that story, too! I am breathless at your comparing my resource to that amazing concept! I do love watching the walls grow in our school each year with all of the kind and just acts of our precious children accumulating. Now I will visualize those acts as bits of light coming together. Thank you for your sweet spirit and your feedback to cherish!

On  June 29, 2013,  Debbie G. said:
I instilled this program last year for a month with my entire school 500+ students. I am the producer of our school's morning news program and taught the whole school each morning different ideas how to commit random acts of kindness and justice. The act of justice was the most amazing because we educated and empowered student bystanders! At the end of the month it was incredible that we had filled walls in the cafeteria, the office and the guidance counselor's office with all the random acts of kindness and justice our kids were doing. I look forward to doing this again next year!
On  June 29, 2013Rainbow City Learning answered:
Debbie, what a wonderful use for this resource! Thank you for taking the time to let me know how it worked for you. I so appreciate your kind feedback, and will think of you and your students when I begin the project again in 2013-14. Have a relaxing summer and a great school year!

Very nice! I have been trying to think of a good theme for RAK board, and I think that this one is great - gender-neutral, good symbolism, intrinsic reward.

Edited to add: I just figured out how I'm going to use it! We'll have a positive graffiti wall! So it'll be an art-social justice-social studies kind of activity ... learn about graffiti - pros & cons - look at places where graffiti has been used in a positive way - begin our graffiti wall displaying positive messages & RAKs. It can go all year (or until the designated wall space is used up). Can't wait!
