If you are designing curriculum that teaches social emotional learning for your school or district to align with the new Colorado comprehensive health and physical education standards, another great resource to check out is the Teach It website at the Colorado Legacy Foundation. Check it out at colegacy.org. The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation is pleased to be listed as a resource partner and to have developed lesson plans that correspond to meeting the new standards.
The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation recenty revamped our kindness teaching materials in preparation for launching the Random Acts of Kindness Education Pilot Program. We selected three schools in the greater Denver metro area to launch this project. This initiative is a comprehensive approach to teaching and learning kindness in the classroom. To learn more about this great new initiative, visit the RAK Education Pilot Program page.
Our lesson plans feature 21st-century learning skills, easily adaptable for technology-enhanced education. Other plans use simple supplies to link learning and kindness. Whatever your needs, these plans will spark ideas and kind action in your classroom.
