Introducing the daily acts of kindness prompt to my students

Each morning during our morning Calendar time, I introduce the new prompt. After reading the prompt, students share ideas as to how to complete their daily kindness task. Once the kindness task has been given, I add it to our kindness display. I often place the kindness Christmas bulbs in our classroom window attaching them to some holiday garland. Display our kindness tasks in the window lets families and our school community know about our Kindness tasks.
