February is Random Acts of Kindness month! Included in this packet are 32 different ideas for Random Acts of Kindness. I also include a sheet of cards to leave behind when your “Love Ninjas” perform a random act of kindness.
During this month, I want my students to learn that we are not kind to others for the recognition. We are kind because it is the right thing to do, and making someone else happy is its own reward. In this respect, I tell my students that we are going to perform these acts of kindness secretly. They really jump on board with being “Love Ninjas.”
Aside from these cards, I ask my students to brainstorm other ideas. It is much more meaningful if the students come up with ways to perform random acts of kindness.
When students understand the concept of kindness and giving simply because it is the right thing to do, the sense of unity and community in your classroom will also grow. I hope your students learn the value of kindness!
