Positive words can have an enormous impact on students, and can actually lower stress and have actually create physiological changes in the brain. These affirmations are a quick way to provide students with a fresh, positive start for each day. There is benefit even if students don't fully believe the words they are saying. I have used this all the way through Middle School and the students might show resistance at first (probably because there is so much negativity that they hear every day) but after a while...they're hooked! I encourage you to read the article in Psychology Today entitled "The Most Dangerous Word in the World." It will change the way you teach! Print these on card stock. Includes 10 affirmations, enough for two weeks of positive words!
