Teaching Character Education? Showing gratitude has been proven to increase long-term well-being, improve health, relationships, emotions and help us bounce back from stressful experiences.
With the significant increase in stress and anxiety among our young people, it is more important than ever that as teachers, we are catering to our students’ emotional needs in the classroom.
This Gratitude Journal is the ideal way to help our students focus on the good aspects of their life and to appreciate their blessings – every one of us has something to be thankful for and this journal will be sure to highlight it! The journal contains 52 prompts, one for each week of the year. Each prompt is unique and encourages reflection on a wide range of life experiences, allowing for much more creativity and diversity in thinking and responses.
It is not labelled by month or date so can be started at any time in the year – new starts don’t have to only begin on January 1st after all and gratitude isn’t just for Thanksgiving! It now comes in 2 different styles: one with the flower seen in the corner and one without the flower.
You can let students take them home to complete as a private activity, or it can be done in school maybe at the start of the week as a Monday Morning Meeting.
You will receive both a PRINTABLE and DIGITAL version to suit your needs! The digital one is ideal for opening up on Google Slides as it can be completed and looked at on any device, whenever and wherever.
P.S. It’s also great for teachers too: we can all take time to have an attitude of gratitude!
