Reflective Writing #1

Worksheet Description

This Reflective Writing worksheet is designed to encourage students to think about their expectations and feelings at the beginning and end of the school year. Students are prompted to contemplate and write down their thoughts on how they think the year will go, what they are looking forward to, and their worries at the start of the school year. At the end of the school year, they reflect on how they felt about the past year, discussing the best and worst parts. The worksheet is split into two sections for these start-of-year and end-of-year reflections.

The worksheet aims to teach students the importance of self-reflection and emotional articulation regarding their educational journey. It helps students develop the skill of introspection by comparing their anticipations with their actual experiences. By engaging in this reflective practice, students learn to identify what aspects of school life bring them joy or concern. Additionally, this exercise can guide students in setting goals and coping strategies for future academic years.
