When encouraging my students to take on a growth mindset this year, I've had to battle their non-stop negative thoughts.
Louise Hay's book, I Think, I Am, teaches students the power of positive affirmations. I've created a graphic organizer that allows students to follow along as you read the book, writing in the positive affirmations that combat the main character's negative thinking throughout the story.
After students change the character's thinking, it's time for them to change their own thinking. They get a graphic organizer that allows them to pick four thoughts to change, as well as small card to write an affirmation on to keep on their desk.
Fun carnival graphics that match the story line are scattered throughout the pages. Enjoy, and hopefully your students start thinking positively about themselves!
