Bright Classroom Jobs, Owl Birthdays and the Worry Rock

I hope everyone is enjoying the Olympics as much as I have been! I am getting super excited about watching the replay of the Woman's Gymnastics tonight at 8!!! The gymnastics portion is my personal favorite! I was blog hopping today and I stumbled upon and Olympic Craftivity created by one of my favorite bloggers, Amy Lemons! Hop on over to her blog (Step into 2nd Grade with Mrs. Lemons) to check out this CUTE craftivity that would be perfect for the first weeks of school! As I have been watching the Olympics, I've been busy getting a few more Back to School packets together!

The Worry Rock is a tool to use in the classroom for kids who have concerns or anxiety. The idea is that the students will share their worries with the Worry Rock and by voicing their concerns, the Worry Rock will take the students’ worries away. Whenever a child is feeling worried, they can go over to the Worry Rock, hold it, and share. Place the Worry Rock in a quiet corner so that the students feel comfortable approaching that area to voice their concerns. Use the attached sheets to help students through the verbalizing process. They can read the poem or just start to speak to the rock. 

This pack includes:
-Worry Rock Poem
-Worry Rock Instructions
-Worry Rock tent/sign


  1. I love your idea of The Worry Rock. We have a "We Care Bag" in our classroom. It has band-aids, a stuffed animal, cranky creme, and various other things that can be used when a kiddo is upset or even mad. The kiddo who has the job of The Encourager can get it and help others with what is inside. It is so sweet to watch them. =)
