Resources: To be honest 'acts of kindness' is a really simply idea to spread a bit of joy and humanity. All you need are a few ideas.
What to do: I've used 'acts of kindness' with my form group in a couple of ways. Firstly we played an acts of kindness bingo game.
My form group came up with ideas for sharing kindness and joy with others and created a grid of ideas. Each time a student completed an act of kindness they put their initials on a sticker and placed it on the grid. The aim was for all pupils to get their initials on each act of kindness before the end of term.
More recently I have created an acts of kindness countdown to Christmas, instead of providing an advent calendar this year I want my form to share a bit of festive spirit and to see that Christmas is more than just consumerism and that spreading joy and happiness is just as important (if not more so). Variations: Do this in the month of Ramadan too?
