Background for Teachers

Self worth is the way that we feel about our-self. What we have experienced cause us to believe in how we feel about ourselves, whether it is positive or negative. If life experiences are negative that can be destructive. People with high self-worth treat themselves and other people with respect.


Intended Learning Outcomes

Students will learn that negative comments will bring your self-esteem down. It is important to say kind words to others and build their self-esteem up also.


Instructional Procedures

  • Read "I Like Myself"
  • Make a small book and have each student write something nice about each other in the book. When it is done the book is given back to the student. They read what others wrote about them. The instructions for making the book are found here on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21qi9ZcQVto


Assessment Plan

Ask questions after the book has been made and their peers wrote positive comments inside it about them. "How did you feel when you read what your peers wrote about you?"
