Celebrate Do Something Nice Day!

October 5th is Do Something Nice Day and Laura Candler is celebrating by giving away a $25 TpT gift card! Download a freebie for this special day and enter to win the contest.
Did you know that October 5th is Do Something Nice Day? No, I'm not making that up! Google it and you'll see! I was looking for holidays in October and this day caught my eye. What a great way to focus on being a good citizen and thinking of others! If you are reading this after October 5th, why not pick a day this week and call it Do Something Nice Day?

To help you and your students celebrate, I created this printable that you can download from the Seasonal Page on Teaching Resources. If you can't find it on that page, use the search feature at the top of the site to look for it. It does not include the date of October 5th anywhere on the page, leaving you free to declare any day you want as Do Something Nice Day!

Before you hand it out to students, spend a few moments discussing what it means to do something nice for others. Sometimes the small things mean the most, so brainstorm a list of ideas. How about complimenting someone, sharing something, or offering a word of encouragement to someone who is discouraged? What about offering to unload the dishes at home or helping your mom or dad prepare dinner?

Ask your students to jot down what they do for others on October 5th and return it the next day to share. I would not have them share with the class since these items may be personal, but you can have them talk about how they felt doing good deeds for the day or follow up by writing about their experiences in a journal. Then remind them that every day can be Do Something Nice Day!

  4. I've been getting your newsletters for years. When teachers would ask me of a good place to get ideas and teaching extras, I always send them your way. Thank you for all you do for so many of us.
