I have a board set up in my room where students can write the good deeds of others. My students are grouped in teams at the beginning of the year. When the members of the team agree that one of the other members did something extra special or nice, the team signs the person up on my Acts of Kindness board on index cards that hang on the board. They list the person's name, the date, and what the person did that was extra nice. At the end of the week the name cards are placed in a bucket and one to two names are picked out. The students who are picked get a prize and the names are cleared for the next week. Trust me... acts of kindness will soar!
