Discover and save creative ideas

    Mary's just an ordinary girl, but when she does a good deed of picking blueberries for her neighbor, she starts a chain reaction that goes around the world, until it comes back to her. Reminding one of the "Random Acts of Kindness" movement, this goes one step farther and comes full circle. This is one of our favorite kids stories of kindness due to the darling illustrations. Additionally, we like that the acts of kindness are small ones, definitely activities that children can relate to.

    Random Acts of Kindness

    These 32 kindness task cards are a great way to promote kindness and regard within the school and beyond. Rotate the cards weekly to encourage kindness for the entire school year. This is one of my favorite classroom activities - one of the most rewarding and fulfilling as a teacher. Use them with a kindness bulletin board, an acts of kindness chart, or with individual student desk or table pockets. $
