This idea was shared by The Fickle Pickle. If you teach at a religious school it may be right up your alley, however, if you teach at a public school you'll probably want to tweak the idea and wording a bit. One of my coworkers does something similar by assigning a "secret friend" during the month of December. They have to find ways to do nice things for that person without being caught. I love that idea. Since I'm such a sucker for a theme and fun props, I love this version as well. I think it would tie in well with community service, anti-bullying, classroom community building and so much more.
The children were each given a personalize manilla folder with the mission to find ways to "serve others," a list of ideas, a recording sheet and some dark glasses inside. I think this would be wonderful to do as nightly homework with the students generating a list of ideas together in class. You could have them write about what they did and create an awesome bulletin board with their writing and photos of them in the dark glasses looking all secretive. Random Acts of Kindness is such a wonderful concept to introduce and to nurture within the classroom.
