How do You Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Day at School?

It’s Random Acts of Kindness Day on February 17th. The point of this holiday is to spread kindness to other people and to make the world a better place.

Having children engage in kindness is also great for your class as students learn to accept and care for each other. Once this takes place, you’ll notice that your students will feel more connected to you and each other, which will in turn, reduce classroom management issues.

As a part of my health unit, I integrate bullying prevention sessions but the term bullying has a negative connotation in and of itself. Instead, using the word kindness adds a positive spin to it. You can integrate this into your social and emotional learning (SEL) classes with the following activities.

Actionable Steps:

#1. Kindness in the School

Teach your students about the importance of kindness and how they can make a difference in their school community by participating in acts of kindness.

Have a random acts of kindness challenge where your students need to perform at least 20 acts of kindness in a day. For every act of kindness, make a note of it and put it on a bulletin board. Not only will it motivate other children but it can be a seen as a fun gave.

This can be spread out over a week so that students have time to really get into it and turn it into a habit.

You can take it a step further and have students reflect on how they felt during and after engaging in their acts of kindness.

#2. Kindness in the Community

It’s important for students to learn how to take what you’re teaching them about kindness into the community so that they know how to what you’re teaching them into the real world.

Take a moment to vote on acts of kindness that you can do in your community. Have your own ideas ready but also give your students a chance to voice their opinions. Once you’ve tallied the votes, take on one or two of the activities. It doesn’t have to be grand. It can be as simple as asking for and donating canned food for your local food bank.


Let’s recap really quickly. Today, we looked at the following:

  1. The importance of teaching about and participating in kind acts.
  2. How do you celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Day at school: kindness in the school and kindness in the community.
