This year, our class has been working towards the completion of 100 Act of Kindness in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.   We began this project on MLK Day with hopes of reaching our goal by the 100th Day of School. With Valentine’s Day occurring around the same time, what better time of year to complete this challenge?  We invited our entire school community – parents, grandparents, neighbors, to participate with us.  The children eagerly brought their notes of kindness to school where we collected them in a special place.  Each week, we read the notes, admiring and appreciating the kindnesses that were shown.  We documented each act of kindness with a heart on a 100 Board Chart.  It shouldn’t come as any surprise, but we surpassed our goal, and came in with 114 acts of kindness!
Once the notes were read, documented, and counted, we were sure to include them for our classroom’s Kindness Wreath.  All morning, the children helped to tie on ribbons.  In doing so, some  bits of the grapevine wreath broke off, and a hidden message appeared in their pieces:

May it serve as a reminder to us all!
