I Am Grateful - A Reflection Journal
Teaching children to be grateful is an important skill. It also helps promote mindfulness and teaches them to be present, in the moment and to reflect on themselves and their experiences.
One way I have implemented reflection time with my own two personal children, as well as with students, is by journal writing. Journaling also helps improve writing skills, which is an added bonus!
I decided to create a journal that helps children learn to reflect. I included color and black/white options. I like having them color certain pages because it helps them express themselves (and they love to color!) I also included large and small versions and styles for a variety of ages.
Here's a few pictures of the journal in action.
There are a variety of mixed prompts and many of them can be repeated to extend the journal, because there is always something to be grateful for!
Here's a little video preview to show you what is included in the Grateful Journal. You can purchase the resource by clicking any of the images in this post.
