A colleague of mine who sometimes reads this blog did this with her sixth graders, but for a different purpose. I am sharing her idea with permission.
Her students were disrespectful to our instructional technology teacher who visits our schools when we have special projects. She took away all in-class computer access and they had to earn it back by showing 100 acts of kindness. There were a few stipulations:
1. Everyone had to earn one.
2. Some had to be given by adults.
3. Students couldn't nominate themselves or ask someone else for one.
I hope they learn to value being kind.
