Random Acts of Kindness with Mr. Hatch

Hello Everyone!

Is it really Sunday afternoon already? These weekends seem to go by so fast...Oh well, we're only 4 and a half days away from a 3 and a half day weekend!  (But who's counting????)

Valentine's Day is only a few short days away, and while I don't know what I'm getting my fiancee, I do know what I'll be doing for my students!  Priorities ;)

Among a few craftivties I found on Pinterest, I'll be using my new mini-unit called "Random Acts of Kindness with Mr. Hatch" after reading one of the cutest books ever! First of all, does everyone read this book for Valentine's Day??? I found it by chance a few years ago, and thought I was in on this little secret no one had any idea about.  But alas, such was not the case.  And I get it, it's a really good book, with a cute plot (doesn't everyone have a cranky old man in their neighborhood?), and an even better lesson to be learned.

There are so many great Mr. Hatch resources out there.  Including the oh-so-cute coupon book from  Christina Bainbridge.  If you found our blog, you definitely know about hers.  She's great.  Jenna and I have been fans of hers since before her blog, when she only had a website.  Yes.  She rocks both.  Superbly. Well, she made a cute **free** coupon book to go with Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch, and I use it every year.  Check it out here. (Look under S).

So, even though there are tons of wonderful resources out there, I thought I'd add to the mix.  I created a mini-packet based on all the Random Acts of Kindess Mr. Hatch and the other characters commit in the book.

I'm uploading it to my oooold Teacher's Pay Teachers account (Jenna and I have to set one up... still...add it to the list!!!!) for just $2.00, but of course I have a little freebie action for you too!  Here are the comprehension questions I included in the packet:

I hope you find this, and have time to use it, before Valentine's Day...but it really could be used anytime your little ones need a refresher on the art of being kind.

By the way, if you're just stopping by, won't you please take the time to be a follower.  Or, leave a comment letting us know you were here.

Thanks, and have a good week!!!
