February is the perfect month to remind ourselves of the importance of speaking kindly and giving positive feedback to those around us. As teachers/educators, we are role models that need to set the example for our students through our words and actions.
Use this activity to share a positive message with your student about the qualities that make them special and unique. This activity also serves as a great way to address social skills and perspective taking—viewing how we see others (pg 3) as well as ourselves (pg 4) through the descriptions and word choices we make.
Page 3-- Fill in the blank hearts with words to describe positive traits about your student, physical descriptions, how he/she is performing in your class, or goals/concepts that they are working on. Then read the description aloud and see if your students can guess who you are describing. As another option, let students fill in the hearts description sheet with words that describe another classmate and share their responses. This is a great exercise in kindness and thoughtful verbal expression !
Page 4--Students can identify and add their own descriptions that best reflect what they think of themselves.
Remind them to reflect on their positive traits (personality, physical traits, strengths/skills).
Page 5-- Words from My Heart” sheet can be used to fill in and give to a parent, sibling, friend, teacher or anyone the student would like to write a description about. Fill in the words and color/decorate the heart.
Page 6 -- Use this page to brainstorm a list of words to be used with any/all of the above pages. The page is divided into three categories to help your students generate a list of words more easily.
