Promoting Kindness
Submitted by: mma215

In my class we have what are called RAKS (Random Acts of Kindness). As soon as the students enter in the morning they are to get out their personally decorated RAK journals. They are to then write down all of the random acts of kindness they performed the day before. After they finish writing them all down they are to count them up. We have a RAK bullentin board that is covered with a paper clip chain. After the students count up their RAKS for the day, they count out the same amount of paper clips and add them to the chain. Every Friday the RAKS are counted to see how many nice things our class did for the week. This gives students the opportunity to see how many nice things they do for others! We take just a couple minutes for several students to share their RAKS and we "retire" RAKS that are overused such as holding the door open for someone. The students set goals for how many RAKS they want to have and everytime they reach a goal, the teacher has something "random" for them to enjoy! The kids love it and go out of their way to be extra nice and kind to others!
