April Social Skills Lesson
This month we will be discussing self-esteem with each classroom. We will be focusing on topics such as bragging, exclusion, bullying, and teasing and how it can hurt someone's self-esteem.
Students will be reading the story I Like Myself by: Karen Beaumont.
After we read and discuss the story, the students will play a game where they will give compliments to each other and receive compliments from their peers. They will be able to feel how good it feels to not only have someone say something nice about them but they will feel how good it feels to say something nice about someone else.
We will discuss the self-esteem remote control and how to use it.
Students will each create an "I Like Myself" flower. They will pick 5 things that they like about themselves. They will decorate their flower and take it home with them to share with their families.
3rd, 4th, and 5th graders:
What you BELIEVE can make a DIFFERENCE!
