I’ve been so inspired lately by my friend Cara Carroll’s amazing ideas for random acts of kindness that I knew I had to get in on the fun! She’s shared so many fabulous ideas on how to pay it forward. I love them ALL! She has an awesome board dedicated to Serving Others on Pinterest. Go check it out! Because I don’t have kids of my own, I wanted to do some of these amazing ideas with my adopted children (aka: my children at school!). So, I brainstormed and brainstormed and came up with…The Kind Kids Club!
The Kind Kids Club is all about doing good deeds for others! Tomorrow, I’ll display this ginormous present throughout the day to get my students excited about what’s inside! I know they will be SQUEALING with excitement!
After lunch, they will come back and find this cute little “Wanted” sign and special letter on the chalkboard. (My kids are OBSESSED with clubs! Can’t you tell? You may recognize this sign from my Back to School packet and my We’re Problem Detectives packet.) After we read the letter, we’ll open up the present and pull out an assignment. The assignments are sweet and simple, but VERY meaningful! In the box, there are different random acts of kindness! We’ll be working on completing each one throughout December.
and completing these activities on ways we can give to others.
After we’ve completed all of our random acts of kindness, I’ll be handing out this certificate of membership. My kids LOVE receiving special certificates! Because The Kind Kids Club is all about paying it forward, I’m giving you all this packet for free! I left one of the Random Acts of Kindness templates blank, incase you wanted to add your own! Go download it NOW! Click on the preview to go to my shop:
Also, make sure you check out my companion packet, “The Gift of Giving.” This packet can be found at my TPT shop! This packet encourages students to be kind to others and give gifts from the heart! My favorite part of the packet is this polar bear craft where students write about a “bear-y” special gift they’d like to give to someone else inside the present. The present folds up to reveal the special gift.
In this packet, you will find:
-“Kind or Not?” Sorting Activity
-Kind Kids Detective Work Activity (students must read a situation card and decide if the situation demonstrates a kind act or not)
-Gift of Giving Writing Activities
-“A ‘Bear-y’ Special Gift For You” Polar Bear Craft and Writing Activity
This packet aligns nicely with your Social Studies curriculum on building a kind community!
