Worry Jar - Cut and Assemble Kit

PDF, Google Slides | 4 pages|Grades: K, 1 - 6

Printable labels, writing slips, and worry exploration worksheet to set up a class (or student) Worry Jar.

Do you have some students that are worriers? Why not provide them a safe space to put their worries so they don’t have to keep thinking about them!

Use the labels in this resource to create a classroom (or student) worry jar. Have it in a space in your classroom where students can access it whenever they are worrying. Then, using the worry slips provided in the download, have your students write down all of their worries, fold each worry up, and put it inside of the jar. Then, they can close it up tight and leave all of their worries behind.

This download includes:

  • jar labels
  • worry slips (with and without lines)
  • worry exploration worksheet.

We have created a color and black and white version of this resource. We have also created an Interactive Google slide to use with your students virtually if you choose. Use the drop-down menu to choose which version works best for you and your students.

NOTE: You will want to make sure when printing that you choose the option ‘Actual Size’ under the Page Sizing section for it to print properly.
