This gorgeous box gifted to our team by a wonderful Preppie parent screamed, “We appreciate you and all that you do” 💛
Teaching is a heap of fun but let’s be real, it take a special type of someone to continuously have a pep in their step to ensure that their kiddos leave with a smile on a dial and are itching to come back the next day. That’s me, that’s my team and that is you too 👏🏼 #happyfriday ...

KIDS GRATITUDE ACTIVITY - FOR HOME OR THE CLASSROOM
Over my years in private practice and schools, I have taught many children about gratitude. This activity is one I have implemented in heaps of classrooms and is simple, fun and effective for kids to express appreciation and thankfulness. After talking to the children about what gratitude was we would brain storm all different things they were or could be grateful for. One way that I would then teach them to express their gratitude was through a gratitude jar. I would set up the jar in the classroom and invite the children throughout the day to write something they were grateful for on a piece of paper and place it in the jar. At the end of the month or term, I would go back into the classroom and we would all sit in a large circle and one by one someone would take a slip out and read it aloud. The kids loved hearing all the things other students were grateful for and they would often report they felt happy and warm 🥰. I discussed with them that gratitude had an amazing way of making them feel happy all over again when they reflected on what they were grateful for originally. Do your little ones practice gratitude in the classroom or at home? If so how do they do it? I would love to know below👇🏼☺️
P.s these gratitude conversation starter cards were from @kikki.k and were amazing for prompting the kids to think of things to be grateful for! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
