All about Me: Reproducible Activity Sheets To Develop Self-Esteem in Your Students.
This document contains a set of reproducible activity sheets for teachers to use in enhancing the self-esteem of their students. Designed to supplement other approaches being used by teachers, the activities in this book can be used to infuse esteem-building activities into the core curriculum. The activities are organized around several recognized building blocks of self-esteem: identity, belonging, purpose and competence. Activities designed to affect identity issues focus on learning to like oneself, identifying one's unique abilities, identifying one's interests, expressing creativity, and learning to use positive self-talk. Activities devoted to the belonging aspect of self-esteem focus on friendship, interpersonal communication, recognizing uniqueness and positive qualities in others, and constructing a family tree and identifying one's roots. The skills of problem solving, decision making, and goal setting are given special attention in the section on purpose and competence, each through a series of sequential activity sheets. (NB)
