5 Positive Behavior Affirmations for Students

Positive affirmations have been increasing in popularity.  I have used them for MYSELF for awhile. Recently, I have begun thinking about how they can be used to improve students thoughts about themselves.  After all, Matilda said it right when she said "If you have good thoughts... they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely!" Thanks Roald Dahl

What is a positive affirmation?

A positive affirmation is self talk that we say to ourselves.  Think of it like a pep-talk to yourself.  You can use one that someone suggests, or you can make up your own.  

Why use positive affirmations with children?

Positive affirmations are a great way to practice self-care and encourage healthy mental and emotional health.

What do I need to know about teaching children or students to use positive affirmations?

  • positive words in the present tense- say "I am" not "I will"
  • repeat them frequently- read them, say them out loud, write them-- especially in a moment of need
  • focus on 3-5 at a time

Where can I find printable positive affirmations for students?

Right here! I have made these for you to use!  Feel free to print one (or all) to use!
