Have You Taught with Gratitude Journals?

The first truly American holiday, Thanksgiving, is nearly upon us! Giving students pertinent topics to write about is a piece of cake (or in this case, pumpkin pie) this time of year with a Gratitude Journal. This simple exercise makes a great bellringer. Not only will students practice their writing skills, but studies show that an attitude of gratitude improves mental health!

Have you ever tried this or similar exercises with students? Share below. And Happy Thanksgiving from the Teaching and Learning Group!
