This document includes two versions. An individual version and a group version. It includes thirty different sheets to encourage children to think positively about the day ahead. Each sheet includes a positive affirmation, a kindness challenge, the gratitude corner, a mindful moment and a calming activity. These can be completed each day or just once a week. The group version can be displayed on your smartboard and completed as a whole class.
Provide each child with one activity sheet to place on their table.
These should ideally be provided in the morning for the children to complete when they arrive to class.
Each child can either circle or colour the emotion they are feeling at the top of the page.
Each child can then complete their sheet as needed throughout the day.
They are encouraged to complete their “kindness challenge” during the day and the “gratitude corner” at the end of the day to reflect on how their day went.
If needed the children can use the “mindful moment” or “calming activity” during the day too.
These sheets can be collected at the end of each day to reflect/further support each child.
The group version can be completed using the smartboard as a whole group in the mornings.
This resource makes up part of the overall Your Teacher’s Pet Creature Emotional Regulation approach to introducing self-regulation skills. While it works great on its own we always recommend pairing it with a Your Teacher's Pet Creature and our other related resources.
