I don't know about your students, but this is one of the toughest times of year behavior-wise for mine. The honeymoon phase is over and it is a looooooong time until spring break with no snow days in sight (for Texas). They. Are. DONE.
Because of how snippy my students have been towards each other lately, I decided to implement a Valentine Random Acts of Kindness Challenge within my classroom.
My students were super pumped when I told them about this challenge. More were willing to participate than I originally thought would. I am hoping the forced kindness will rub off and they will turn back into the sweet kiddos that I know are in there somewhere!
Want to make your own? I have included some blank cards so that you can alter the assignment to fit the needs of your own classroom.
Be sure to head on over to my store and download this FREEBIE to do with your own students! I truly hope that they are as excited about the challenge as my own students were. We could all use any help possible to get the grumpiness to go away!
What are some things you do in your own classroom to help spark student kindness?
