Starbucks Coffee Sleeve Decorating for Random Acts of Kindness Week #RAKWEEK

Image
When browsing Instagram one day, I stumbled upon an idea from another school counselor, Jonathon Allen. He had his students decorate coffee sleeves for a local coffee shop for the Great Kindness Challenge. You can view the post here .  I loved the idea and decided to try at my school. I met with a student from the Student Council Service Committee that I advise. She assisted me in calling Starbucks near our school and inquiring about decorating coffee sleeves. Our local Starbucks was super supportive and gave us over 150 coffee sleeves to decorate. Students came during lunches to decorate Starbucks Coffee Sleeves with kindness messages. I then took them to our local Starbucks to be distributed for Random Acts of Kindness Day, which was February 17th this year (#RAKWEEK). This activity was a quick and easy way for students to spread kindness in our community. How do you celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week at your school?

Sprinkle Kindness Everywhere Bulletin Board

Our Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) theme for February is Kindness. I created this bulletin board to encourage students to spread kindness and to give them some ideas of how to be kind.  Below is a close up of some of the kindness ideas I included on the bulletin board. I love the idea of "sprinkling" kindness by doing small things that can make a difference for others. This "Sprinkle Kindness Everywhere" bulletin board kit is available for purchase in my TPT store . What bulletin boards do you create for kindness?
