Use this FREE printable with your little ones, encouraging them to use affirmations to improve their self esteem, over all well being, and creative expression.
Thinking Positively is a powerful tool that can improve your over all well being, help to manage anxiety, overcome challenges, and make better choices. As parents and/or educators, I’m sure we all affirm our children positively and praise them often in an effort to maintain their self esteem. I think it is equally important to ensure that our little ones are able to self affirm.
I have been working on “ I AM” statements with my son and get so excited when I hear him use these statements without prompt! There is something magical about teaching young people the concept of “Believing in self!!!
Positive thinking begins with positive self talk
Introducing positive affirmations is one of the many ways you can encourage the maintaining of positive thoughts! Everyone can benefit from improving their positive thinking skills! Positive thinking can lead to an improved sense of control of your emotions and your actions. Positive thinking skills often start with positive-self talk. By beginning to think more positively, kids can learn to believe in themselves and work towards their individual potentials.
Ideas for use of this printable:
- If you have a student who can read simply cut these out and place one in their lunch box/bag. This would be a perfect mid-day “replenishing” reminder for your child!
- If your student is pre-k or kindergarten, cut these out and choose one daily or weekly. Read it aloud and explain that this affirmation can be your focus for the day (or week).
For example: “I choose kindness”. You may choose to discuss what it means to be kind with your little one(s) and/or why its important. List/discuss some ways you can be kind to yourself, your peers, your belongings etc. and how you plan to be kind that day/week.
- Hang affirmation(s) where they are visible, the refrigerator, in a bedroom on the wall or classroom.
