The positive self-talk activities and 40 scenario cards in this comprehensive resource teach children the difference between being an Inner Critic and an Inner Coach. Research demonstrates that children with positive outlooks on life and a willingness to try new activities have improved academics and quality of life. As an occupational therapist with over fifteen years of experience in schools, I share my favorite and most effective strategies to help kids master positive thinking in several areas of life, including academics, sports, and within the community.
Activities are as follows:
1- A cut and paste "Inner Coach" story (1 activity)
2- A cut and paste "Inner Critic" story (1 activity)
3- A cut and paste activity to help children understand what an Inner Coach and an Inner Critic says to himself or herself (1 activity)
4- A cut and paste activity to help children understand how an Inner Coach and an Inner Critic think (1 activity)
5- Matching activities for kids to determine whether statements they read are made by an Inner Coach or by an Inner Critic (2 activities)
6- Instructional posters with criteria to help children learn how to act like an Inner Coach and not like an Inner Critic (2 posters)
7- 40 Scenario Cards within the following categories help children role play different situations in which they could be Inner Coaches or Inner Critics.

* In the Classroom (12 scenarios)
* At School (12 scenarios)
