They will use these shapes to write about the moments, people or things they are grateful for. After 2 (or more) weeks, with the help of the teacher, they will read what they are grateful for or what they have written on the leaves of the class gratitude tree. The descriptions are anonymous, and the students are told in advance that they will read some of the descriptions to share the sense of gratitude with each other.

    • Higher grades – Class gratitude box

    In class, students decorate the class gratitude box together. In the next 2 weeks (or more, depending on the agreement with the class teacher), they put papers saying what they are grateful for (person, event, feeling) in the box. After some time, they spend one lesson reading their descriptions of gratitude. The descriptions are anonymous, and the students are told in advance that they will read some of the descriptions to share the sense of gratitude with each other.
