Finding Kindness in a Middle School Classroom

I'm lucky this year.  

I share two Grade 8 classes full of kids who are genuine, respectful, and compassionate of others.  I talk with my partner teacher all the time about how nice our kids are.  I wanted to make sure that the students, themselves, knew how nice they are.  I decided to put up a "Finding Kindness" bulletin board in my room where students could recognize an act of kindness and post it for the other kids to see.

After one day, it was already getting full!  It wasn't hard to find the kindness in our school, but I notice now that the kids are looking for it everywhere.  They want to be able to put up a post about other kids, not only in their own classes, but in the hallways, outside, and everywhere.

Do you do something similar in your school?  Let me know in the comments below.
