At times, we can be over-critical of ourselves. We may harp on our imperfections, forgetting about the already existing good qualities. This activity will have students make positive affirmations for themselves. By creating five or more affirmations, students will have to think about more than just surface characteristics.
You may find that students have trouble listing five good things about themselves. This is a troubling reality, but is exactly the reason why this topic is important to cover. It shouldn’t be hard to talk positively about yourself. If a student is struggling, a good idea is to tell them what you like about them as a student (class participation, good listener, hard worker, etc.). Students should also be encouraged to think about their hobbies and why they stick with them!
