Do you fancy using an advent calendar in class in December as a cultural reference, but want to avoid the religious connection? How about using this fabulous December Kindness Calendar instead?
Produced by British charity Action for Happiness, it encourages you to do a kind act each day, like counting your blessings or seeing how many people you can smile at today.
Print it out and stick it on your classroom wall. In each class, invite someone to take on that day's kindness challenge, and report back next class.
You can download the calendar here.
