The ‘Kindness in the Classroom’ program was developed by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, with the goal of integrating kindness skill building with the development of social and emotional competencies in children Grades K-12. Based on a four-step model (Empower-Act-Share-Inspire), the lessons revolve around 12 “kindness concepts” defined by RAK: Assertiveness, Caring, Compassion, Fairness, Gratitude, Integrity, Helpfulness and Perseverance. These lesson plans are available for download free of charge from the website. Also available are posters, book lists, and grade-specific kindness project ideas.
