Prank it Forward

I (Cathy) had never heard of “Prank It Forward” until today.  It is heartwarming.  If you want to feel good about people this is long weekend, watch the following video.

This ‘prank’ reminded me of a project one of my students started last year in her classroom during her practice teaching.  She called it Spread the Joy.  Everyday she initiated an event that would make a student happy and challenged the class to spread the joy.  It was one of the most powerful things I have ever seen happen  in a classroom.   She turned the class around.

Big or small, giving a car or a compliment, we can make a difference.
