100 Acts of Kindness and a {FREEBIE}! :)

Happy Monday bloggy buddies!  So glad to be back, I missed you guys :)  I am super psyched about Valentine's Day next week, are you???  We have been working on showing some love and kindness toward each other in my class and it has been a little tough.  So, you know me, I had to make it FUN!!!  We read one of my fave Valentine's Day/Character Trait books "Kindness is Cooler, Mrs. Ruler!" where a teacher challenges her class to 100 acts of kindness. 

That's exactly what I proposed my students do.  I gave them this template and bought some foam hearts from the Target dollar section and set them to work.  We've been working for a little over a week and we have about fifty acts of kindness done (they have until Valentine's Day to finish 100 acts of kindness for the class).  I must say they've really seemed to be trying A LOT harder to be kind to each other which makes me one HAPPY teacher! :)  Here's our door so far... And if you'd like the template I used to for their hearts click HERE or the pic of the template below :) 

                                                      Enjoy and have a FAB rest of your Monday!

Had to order this book. After having No name calling weeek a few weeks ago at our school. It seems like their is more attention to that behavior. So this would be great to read around V-day. (Focus on the good behavior) Thanks for sharing the book idea.
