This game was created for the use of School Counselors during small group intervention or individual short term counseling; However, teachers can definitely benefit from using this game during morning meetings or other appropriate times.
Cut out the cards and divide into two separate piles. Have the students find the replacement good thought after reading the bad thoughts. Before playing the game explain to students the important role thoughts play into the way we feel and behave. If we can change our thoughts, we can change our mindset and in turn always put forth our best attitude and our best effort in everything we do.
Spanish translation is included on the yellow colored cards to use with Spanish speaking students.
