Random Acts of Kindness

Like any skill, kindness takes practice. Teach kindness and other social-emotional skills with these outstanding free resources from the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation.

February 12-17 is Random Acts of Kindness Week!

From starting a kindness club to discussing self-care, there are endless ways teachers can teach students to be kind. Studies show that students who practice social-emotional skills like kindness have more self-control, higher self-esteem, and better test scores. Just as significant, kindness is beautiful—and it makes people happy.

The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation offers a brilliant collection of K-12 standards-aligned activities, lesson plans, and projects. A terrific resource to celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week and to help you bring a culture of kindness to your classroom.

Its Educator Guide, rooted in social and emotional learning (SEL) and Universal Design for Learning, has a thorough approach to building kindness in your classroom and school. The guide is chock-full of resources: 12 Kindness Concepts, tool kits, annotated lessons, and more!
