I LIKE MYSELF
This less is a good one to follow the body drawings because children
have already begun to explore aspects about themselves. You might want to
have some of the body drawings present if you have still have. If not,
remind children about the activity of making body drawings. Review the
idea that we all have similarities and differences.
To encourage self awareness and awareness of others while also
fostering self worth.
Begin by saying something like, "You know, I really
like Samantha's pretty brown hair. I like my own hair too. I like it because
it is curly. In fact, I kind of like my hands because they are gentle and I
can use them in so many ways. I like my feet because they help me get to
where I want to go. Jenny, what are some things you like about yourself?"
Continue on with other children and encourage them to
give input to each other about what they like about each other. If a child
cannot think of anything to say, prompt them with statements such as, "Alex,
what is it that you like best about your eyes?"
Some children may feel self-conscious about themselves
and should not be pushed.
Practice & Extended Activities:
Reminders throughout the day should be encouraged. Be
aware of children who demonstrate the concept throughout the day in the
classroom and point their efforts out to other children as a model.
