My Flowers Are: Activity Sheet:
This is a wonderful introductory and icebreakers activity sheet for gardeners in grades K-5. Have your students write down their 'flowers' (the things that make you feel happy & joyful) on each of the petals. This is a wonderful tool to use as a positive distraction when a gardener is frustrated or visibly upset. It can open up a positive conversation.

This is a wonderful way for your students to communicate when they need help 'pulling a weed'. --> All you need is a pot or pail, a gardening marker or popsicle stick, post it notes or origami paper.

Weeds to Seeds Journaling
Journaling is one of our favorite 'gardening tools' for our emotional toolkit, as it helps us be present minded, connect with our feelings and express what we are 'growing through' at that particular moment. By writing our thoughts down on a frequent basis (we recommend weekly), it helps build confidence when it comes to expressing our feelings and thoughts and is extremely beneficial for our social and emotional development!
