This activity is to be used during the month of December to promote kindness. My students love the feeling of earning a heart for mean, old Mr. Grinch! How do students earn hearts?? Well, they have to demonstrate above and beyond kind or helpful behavior! I stress to my students that they may not receive a heart every single time they do something nice, and they should be completing those kind acts “just because!” This has been a wonderful addition to my room during the month of December! My students and I absolutely LOVE it! I hope you do too!
***Print out one of the signs to display for your students. Place the sign next to a picture of the Grinch. I drew mine, but you could absolutely print one! Print and cut hearts to be placed on the Grinch. Each time a student earns a heart, write their name on the heart and have them place it on the Grinch. I try to make sure that everyone gets at least one heart before the end of the month!
