Does your class need a lesson on kindness or respect? Our kindness challenge checklists teach social skills and positive character traits to nurture friendships and enhance classroom management.

Students learn to be thoughtful and considerate of others. They will be engaged for hours or days during Random Acts of Kindness Day, Pay It Forward Day, or World Kindness Week in February, April, and November.

Teryl H. shared that the kindness checklist is a "great addition to my SEL lessons!"

Dana C. is "excited to have a tool to support the principles I am teaching my children."

Lara L. said "What an easy-to-follow chart for kids! I love it!"

NO PREP ► If you want a quick print-and-go option, you'll love the ready-made checklists.

TEACHER can CUSTOMIZE ► Tweak the kindness worksheets to suit your grade.

STUDENTS can PERSONALIZE ► Students can practice digital skills while typing in their own acts of kindness using the Google Slides™ file.

INDEPENDENT or as a GROUP ► Students can work independently or learn skills such as consideration and co-operation by working together on the group challenge.

Use this activity as a writing lesson by having students construct their own checklist on the blank templates.

Students complete three or more acts of kindness from four categories (school, home, community, with an adult) OR five or more in two categories working together in a group.

Pair checklists with our best-selling kindness coloring pages by grabbing the BUNDLE!
