Reward kindness in the classroom with four styles of printable kindness certificates that celebrate thoughtful acts among your students and the environment.

Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Day

Recognize kindness amongst your students—both to each other and the environment—with this set of four kindness certificates. 

Each template includes a space to put the student’s name and the celebratory act. Use these certifications to thank students for their kindnesses any time of year, especially: 

😊 Random Acts of Kindness Day (February 17)

🌈 World Kindness Day (November 13)

📚 Back to School week

💗 Social-emotional learning lessons

❤️ Kindness & compassion exercises

Students’ acts of kindness can show up in lots of ways! These are a few to look out for or even suggest to your class:

  • Say please and thank you.
  • Assist a peer with an assignment.
  • Help clean up a mess you didn’t make.
  • Plant flowers for the bees and butterflies.
  • Hang a bird feeder.
  • Hold a door for someone.
  • Invite a schoolmate to join in a game.
  • Say something nice about someone.
  • Speak up for someone who needs help.
  • Sit with someone you don’t usually eat lunch with.

Your students can spread kindness like confetti. Acknowledge their efforts with these certificates!
