*A list of 10 read-alouds to read during each day of the challenge
*8 blank hearts in different colors (so that your can add your own R.A.K. to your classroom challenge)
*Kindness poster to display in your classroom during the challenge
*Links to websites with more ideas of R.A.K.
*Small thank you note for custodians (students write a quick thank you note to the custodian and leave it on their desk at the end of the day)
*Letter template (students will write a letter to someone on the classroom telling them why they are special)
There are many different ways you can hold the challenge in your classroom: one R.A.K a day starting February 1st and leading up to Valentine's Day, one R.A.K per month for the entire school year, one R.A.K. per day for a month, or any other ways you wish to hold your challenge. The possibilities are endless! You can also use the blank hearts to "catch" a child doing a R.A.K. and then write it on the heart and post it in the classroom.
This challenge is a fun and easy way to teach your students about kindness and how to "pay it forward"!
