This week is "Random Acts of Kindness Week". Nothing makes me feel better than doing a random act of kindness for someone. Throughout the year, I like to do these acts anonymously so that I get absolutely nothing in return. Getting "even" takes away the magic and thoughtfulness of the act. I don't share the things I do with anyone, not even my family; so if they are reading this, which I know they are (hi mom!), they will be surprised.
While it doesn't take a national holiday for me to complete random acts of kindness - the holiday helps bring attention within schools across the nation. My classroom is participating in the building-wide kindness initiative. We will also be completing some additional activities that are more specific to our room's student population - ELLs.
In an effort to kick off this week...

I've rounded up some of my favorite kindness quotes. I plan on sharing these with my students as well and having a small discussion - these kids LOVE quotes! I blame Instagram.
Feel free to share or repost these :)
