students can write an act of kindess they expierenced and link it to another. You can make a class goal at the beginning of the year (how many links will we link together) and see how close each prediction was.
Want your students to try out a variety of genres? Then try out "Reading Musical Chairs"! It's also a great activity if you need some quiet time during the day? Want to be able to read yourself? You can take part too! =)
