~~~

Injecting random acts of kindness into daily life is a great way for a person to brighten his or her attitude, as well as to help others. Show students the importance of random acts of kindness with these 53 new journal topics.

As your kids consider the kind things they could do for someone else, students will be motivated to start adding small bits of kindness into their everyday activities. These journal topics, ideas and prompts will also help students to think about the meaning behind random acts of kindness, from the reasons to complete an act anonymously to the way the world would look if everyone did something kind each day.

After your students have brainstormed ideas for random acts of kindness, encourage them to try some of their ideas and write about their experiences. They’ll love writing about the great feelings they get from helping others – and, best of all, they’ll be excited to go out and participate in more random acts of kindness.
