Spark Student Motivation: Positive Pranking

Happy Halloween! You made it through the week!
Let's spark some motivation and spread some kindness!

This is an idea YOU HAVE to use in your classroom! It will motivate your students, spread kindness, and make another classroom happy all at the same time!
What is it called? POSITIVE PRANKING!

Positive Pranking is doing something nice for someone else, the reverse of the pranking that's hurtful and sometimes destructive. The form of positive pranking we're doing is the reverse of "ding-dong-ditching". Instead of knocking on a house door and leaving without a trace, we're knocking on classroom doors and leaving a goodie bag!

I filled treat bags with lollipops and pencil cap erasers and topped it with a note to explain the special delivery. We didn't sign the notes, but we did leave a "clue". We stamped them with a high heel you think they'll guess who it is??!!

 We plan "MISSIONS" as a class (who will receive the positive prank, the route the positive pranker will take, and where to hide after they knock). One of my students is keeping track in a notebook of all the classrooms we've hit and which students have had a turn to carry out the prank

This student wanted to "dress up" for his mission! So cute!
 My class is so funny the way they pile at the door to watch the mission. Then we have to quickly close the door before the other class answers. We don't get to see the reactions of the teacher or students, but we love imagining it!

My students are BEGGING me to do the positive pranking! I tell them I'm looking for someone who is a leader in our class and someone who can pull off the mission!

This is seriously one of the BEST things I've implemented in our classroom! It makes EVERYONE happy and feel good! We've pranked 6 classrooms so far! We plan to do one a day until we've pranked the whole school!!!
Help spread kindness and positive prank someone today!
