This elementary school guidance lesson builds self-esteem while practicing the coping strategy of thinking good things.
The Circle of Love is a concept students easily understand and can use when someone is not nice to them.
First students name people who love them and something that makes them proud. Then when presented with hurtful words, they use their positive thoughts to push away the negative ones.
Once students learn the power of positive thinking, they have an important tool to use when another is mean to them.
