Incorporating Gratitude Activities in the Classroom
My first blog post about “gratitude in the classroom” has produced a lot of feedback! I’ve heard from so many of you—you’re sharing ideas, asking questions, and totally getting why gratitude is such an important practice in the classroom.

In that first post, I talked about gratitude journals and how they’re an awesome activity for getting students to think about gratitude on a daily basis—and an excellent way to get the whole class involved and interacting.
But journals aren’t the only way to practice gratitude in the classroom. There are sooo many others!
In her article “Gratitude Activities for the Classroom,” Vicki Zakrzewski of the Greater Good Science Center offers more than a dozen easy-to-implement activities that your students will love.
