Encourage your students to see the good in others and practice acts of kindness daily by doing this project in your classroom! I have used it each year around
Valentine's Day, but it could easily be used at any other time of the year as well. Students choose a classmate's name from a hat and are asked to observe that student and see what positive character traits they have. While observing them, the student must perform random of acts of kindness - not only for their secret friend, but for others in the class as well! The project culminates in a celebration where friends share the compliments they have written for each other. It is hands down one of my favorite activities I have ever done, and something my students never forget. I hope you will enjoy using this in your classroom as much as I have!
