A fantastic place to start on a journey to be grateful, happy, and learn Spanish! The Mis 5 Cositas focuses on writing about 5 LITTLE THINGS each day. This resource was designed after I tried a generic grateful journal (Hoy, estoy agradecido…) in my 1st-grade Spanish Immersion classroom but was getting the same answers all the time: Mi Familia, mi mascota, mi escuela, mi casa…
I felt like we could do better than this. So, I gave them Spanish picture dictionaries and a different theme each day.
WOW! It became fun and their Spanish Vocabulary increased immensely! They enjoyed filling out the sheets in the morning, they began to enjoy writing and best of all, their attitudes became positive and happy!
INCLUDED IN THIS JOURNAL:
- 30 Themed and Prompted Templates! The templates are designed with varying writing abilities in mind. There are a wide variety of pages with little writing with lots of places to draw it out all the way to some pages that have all writing. A few topics include nature, compliments, laughter, kindness, and favorite activities.
- 4 different cover styles so kids can take some ownership in their journaling book.
- 3-page guide with tips, how-to’s, and 20 additional prompt ideas
- 5 take-home pages! These can be brought home to reflect back on the day and make some goals for the next day. It’s completely optional, of course, but I did have many students that loved showing and working on it with their family at night. They love to show off their Spanish! Numerous studies have shown how important gratitude is for children:
- increase in concentration/engagement in school
- increased self-esteem
- ability to cope better with stress
- decrease in aggressive behavior
- more optimistic/happy
- better sleep
