Random Acts of Kindness for Sandy Hook

As educators, we remember and honor our fallen colleagues and their students from Sandy Hook School.  We honor them each day in our classrooms in which we continue their dream of teaching our children.  We honor their memory with our service.  Join with teachers everywhere in committing random acts of kindness to show our love for Sandy Hook.

All during this week, please promote the RAK on social media.  Use the hashtag:  #love4SH. Get in the giving spirit and promote random acts if kindness at school, in your community and at home!

D.I.Y December; A holiday Linky Party!

So this week I have many projects in my plans!! I am making placemats, shape snowmen, and cinnamon ornaments!  I made snowglobes last week,, with a writing assigment: 'What would it be like if you lived in a snow globe?'

I love this time of year and how much fun I can make the common core in kindergarten!  I always find a way to include the common core in a craft or project!


During the week I will be updating this post as I create more projects!!  So far we have completed the DIY snowglobe project, so here it is!  All you need is writing paper, a circle cut out (light blue) and a trapezoid as the stand (black), maybe a little glitter, crayons and a big imagination!  Let me know what you think!




Remembering Sandy Hook and some Random Acts of Kindness

As educators, we remember and honor our fallen colleagues and their students from Sandy Hook School. We honor them each day in our classrooms in which we continue their dream of teaching our children. We honor their memory with our service. Join with teachers everywhere in committing random acts of kindness to show our love for Sandy Hook.




The day of the tragedy at Sandy Hook, I heard about it through texts but didnt realize the devastation until after school when I read the articles.  How horrific of an event, how terrible it would have been, but we have an opportunity to provide Random Acts of Kindness to people in our lives that usually do not get the recognition for what they do every day.

This week, my class will be performing random acts of kindness in school!  I am excited to bring this idea to the kids because as kindergarteners, we have the opportunity to use our imaginations, creativity and cuteness to make a teacher, staff member, janitor, administrator, or parent smile and remember to be kind, caring and positive.  :)

We will be watching a Random Acts of Kindness video from Youtube to get some ideas!  Check it out; this is easy to do at any gradelevel!  You can do it too! :)  Join in the fun, and put a smile on someone's face this week!  :)
