Challenge your students to do something for others! 

  • Use the kindness calendar above and set your pupils the challenge of spreading kindness to others. These random acts of kindness challenges can spark motivation for completing a task and create a positive habit.

Give them a goal to meet.

  • You can keep track of their progress in completing their random acts of kindness by setting an amount of “kindness tasks” they have to complete each week. Pupils can then mark the task complete on their “Kindness Calendar” by colouring in the corresponding box.

Encourage them to show kindness to others throughout the day themselves, and see what a difference THEY can make.

Temperature Check

Begin each day of class by asking your pupils “How are you feeling today?”.  

  • An emotional check-in like this can re-enforce to your class that we are all human and that we can sometimes have feelings and emotions that change and don’t feel as good. 
  • Pupils can share and talk with others about their feelings or share with the class.  
  • As a teacher this can alert to some fragile feelings or moods within the class. Therefore, you can be mindful of this and take the steps to make certain pupils feel better. For example, talk with the student after class about their emotions.
