#WATWB – Random Acts of Kindness | Kindness Ideas for Children

For this month’s #WATWB – We are the World Blogfest, I hopped over to Randomactsofkindness.org to see what was new and found this wonderful effort to educate young children in the classroom about kindness.



kindness quote D.G. Kaye


This project is geared at promoting a social, emotional curriculum to help make schools create a culture of kindness. This is a FREE program that teachers can use to incorporate in their classrooms, taken in 6 steps – Respect, Caring, Inclusiveness, Integrity, Responsibility, and courage.

I think this is fantastic method of integrating all the goodness and elements of kindness into young children to set the path straight for them to learn about treating fellow classmates and human beings with respect and kindness.

Please feel free to click on the link below to learn more about this program. And help yourself to a download of the various options offered.


Kindergarten – 5th Grade

Our new Kindness in the Classroom® curriculum is a Tier 1 evidenced-based social emotional learning curriculum designed to help schools create a culture of kindness. Use the tabs below to find everything you need to effectively teach important kindness skills to your kids. Click here if you are looking for Grades 6-8.





This site offers anyone to become a ‘Raktivist’ (Random Acts of Kindness activist) and join in on any of their many acts of kindness.

  1. What a superb share, Debby. I love it. But you knew I would. Although I am a Raktivist, I didn’t realise there was an organisation. Thank you for the link. We need more of these to make our world a better place for all of us. Thank you. 💖


    1. Oh, so glad you came to the party Norah. I thought of you when I was writing this post for sure! IN fact, at first I looked to see if this was your program! ❤


  2. Loved this post Debby, but isn’t it kind of sad that schools have to teach Kindness instead of it being taught in the home.. Sad when you think deeply about that..
    There are so many ways to show appreciation and kindness starting with a simple smile..
    My granddaughter is eight and I was saddened to learn how often she is bullied at school from one particular child.. So Schools do need to educate the young about being kind, because I feel many young children are growing from learnt behaviour at home..

    I wonder why we didn’t turn out mean???? lol… 😉

    Many thanks Debby for sharing the links and for promoting acts of kindness..
    Love and Hugs my friend ❤


    1. Thank you Sue. And I so agree, why kids aren’t being taught about kindness at home is very sad. I’m glad efforts like this project have taken the initiative to spread the goodness in schools at least! And I’m sooo sorry about your granddaughter. Children can be so mean. And it’s those kids who need the education of kindness the most! ❤ Hugs my friend. ❤ xoxo


  3. Kindness is instilled through exemplary behavior. If we start it at school level, it would be more effective. We do need a “culture of kindness” in these disturbing times. Kudos to those who are undertaking this project. Thanks for sharing.


  4. Hi Debby – I too hadn’t realised there was a website for acts of kindness activist – makes sense though. I smile, and let other go ahead … though do wish we were all more polite or understood each other’s cultures … our foreign students rattle around the town – noisy, loud, millions trying to get on the bus … I got the next one – 15 minutes after due departure.

    But really shouldn’t complain – being young is a growing period (I hope!) … I too wrote about triplets doing their bit for society … the post seems to be being picked up and past on – cheers Hilary


  5. Such a great initiative Debby, thank you for sharing! I don’t have a #WATWB post this time round; am catching up on commenting on others that do 🙂 – and of course, it’s so uplifting to read these kinds of stories!


    1. HI Susan, thanks for dropping by. I noticed you didn’t post as I do always drop by. 🙂 No worries, so glad to see you here, and we’ve all missed a few postings along the way. 🙂 x


  6. This is beautiful, Debby. Thanks for sharing. I try to live as a Raktivist, and posts like this remind me of why it’s so important and of the far-reaching impacts of RAKs.


  7. As a former teacher, I like reading about amazing initiatives like these for teachers and classrooms. Back when I was teaching, concepts like these weren’t a part of the curriculum. A lot was up to the teacher to add valuable life lessons or ethics or common sense (whenever there was “extra” time). 🙂


    1. Well it seems like with so much bullying going on in the schoolyards that onus seems still on teachers. I believe the effort could be very effective, teaching them young on kindness and compassion. 🙂 xx


  8. Wonderful work! A good friend started a program called “A Dream of the Good” in Swedish schools and it’s spread throughout the school system and is also being used in Finland. It’s impressive! Teaching children about love and kindness would change our world.
