When Things Go Wrong Worksheet


Worksheet in which children think about what their thoughts, feelings and reactions were at a time when something went wrong. This can open up discussion to better ways to handle when things go wrong.


Why do you need this?

Encouraging children to reflect on their thoughts, feelings, and reactions during challenging situations promotes self-awareness. It helps them understand their emotional responses and thought patterns. By examining their reactions to difficult situations, children can learn to identify triggers for negative emotions and develop strategies for managing them effectively.


How and when might you use this?

These worksheets could be used in a variety of ways:

· In lessons on social-emotional learning that focus on understanding and managing their emotions.

· Use it as a guided activity to help children identify the common thought patterns associated with different emotions and brainstorm positive alternatives.

· Following an emotional incident or conflict as a tool for self-reflection.

· During counselling sessions to support students in managing their emotions and developing coping strategies. Empower children to challenge their negative thoughts with positive ones.

· As a prompt for whole class discussions about emotional well-being and positive thinking.

· As part of an end of the day check-in routine. Children can have time to reflect on their thoughts and feelings.
