 Vision Board/Journaling:

The first two weeks students will explore the value of journaling their goals, thoughts, gratitude, and more.  Everyone will design their own journal and discover thought-provoking topics.  Journaling is one of the best ways to help kids develop their self-esteem, as it encourages reflection, offers confidence, provides stability, and promotes creativity. When students journal, they become more aware of their own feelings and grow more comfortable expressing their ideas. The second two weeks will focus on creating a vision board, where students will be empowered to develop goals and put to use those goals on paper in the format of a vision board.
