Jeffrey Froh, PsyD, is an assistant professor of psychology at Hofstra Universtiy in N.Y.. His research showed that there are great reasons to teach our children to be more grateful. He conducted a gratitude journal experiment similar to the one offered in this package. One third of the students who started the experiment saw it through to completion. "The gratitude group experienced a jump in optimism and overall well-being,” reported Froh. "Furthermore, they were more satisfied with school even three weeks later.”
Inspired by his findings, I decided to put this package together. It is designed for elementary school students but there's no reason why this can't be used even for high school students.
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend". - Melody Beattie
Due to the digital nature of this product, no refunds will be given. Pages are included with Canadian and American spellings of words. All pages with graphics in colour can be printed in black and white by going to "print", "colour", hitting the drop down menu there and choosing "gray scale".
I hope that you and your students will get a lot out of this package as they learn to appreciate all that they already have. Enjoy!
