Build Self Esteem with this fun, easy to learn game I made up. It is a cross between war and rock, paper, scissors. Self Esteem Questions are on each card and in order to win the trick you have to answer the question on your card without repeating answers you have already used. You can play until one person wins all the cards or you can play for a certain amount of time and see who has the most cards.
It would also be a great way for kids to build positive connections in your classroom. 1) Have the kids pair up and play for so many minutes, then rotate to a new partner and play the new partner for so many minutes. 2) Give each kid 5 cards, have an inner circle and an outer circle and they rotate after each trick, teacher adds him/her self in to even the number as needed. If kids lose their cards they sit out of the game, and the person with all the card or the most cards after a designated time frame wins.
