Gratitude Activities for Staff & Students
by Kelly Campman, FOR Club Director
1. Create a “Gratitude Book.”
Keep this in a common area. Encourage staff and students to write a specific statement of gratitude each week. Choose a statement to share each week.
2. Encourage students and staff to write in “Gratitude Journals.”
Write down detailed things that make life worth living in at least 5 sentences.
3. Provide “Gratitude Prompts” for students each day and for staff prior to staff meetings.
Make time to share.
- I’m grateful for my friendship with…because…
- I’m grateful for my family…because…
- Three things that I’m grateful for at my house…
- Three things I’m grateful that I am able to do…
4. Write and Personally Deliver “Gratitude Letters.”
Take the time to let the people in your life know that you are thankful/grateful for them.
5. Develop and Model an “Attitude of Gratitude.”
“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.“– William Arthur Ward
