Worry Tree – Item 315


Add to wishlist

This is a downloadable resource - once purchased, it will be available for you to download.

The inspiration for this Worry Tree resource was from our blog post on ‘AUTUMN LEAVES’. It made me think how the tree ‘let’s go’ of their leaves in autumn. The idea for this resource is that pupils can be involved in making the tree. Lots of mindful colouring involved. They can take a blank leaf and write their worry.

They stick it to the tree – I would suggest bluetak not glue, even though that is mentioned in my poem. Tried hard to rhyme it! The tree will keep the worry safely until a strategy has been found or just so the pupil can offload the worry. When the pupil is no longer worried they can move the leaf from the tree and let it fall to the ground.

I envisage a pile of leaves at the bottom of the display where pupils can see how others have dealt with their worries. It is good that pupils can see that other people worry too. There is no need for names to be written on leaves as this is a visual representation of how to deal with worries. It empowers the pupil to find a solution, make a plan or get help if they need it themselves.

Included in the pack is:

  • Tree PDF which can be printed any size you like
  • Giant tree all ready to print on A4 sheets and pieced together
  • Blank leaves for writing
  • Mindful colouring leaves
  • Leaves with key vocabulary
  • Coping strategies/questions on clouds
  • Tree poem
  • Banner for display
  • You may need to enlarge or reduce your leaves depending on which size tree you go for.

We recommend you use Adobe Reader to open your PDFs which gives you lots of possibilities for printing.

This pack is perfect for older pupils with lots of opportunity for mindful colouring. If a pupil comes to you upset then discuss the clouds and let them colour in, or give them a leaf to colour for the display. This is a working display made by pupils and will change a little at a time as more bits get added.

"Despite the intense training ELSAs receive, when starting out it can feel overwhelming. Without this website I don’t know where I would have been. The immense availability of incredible resources and support are second to none. There has never been a situation when there hasn’t been a resource available. Debbie the site owner is always working on new resources and will be guided by and listen to all the members voices. Thank you so much!"
