Two activities to use with a child to write about how they feel about themselves. These are appropriate for use at school with a teacher or assistant, or at home talking about school. The third is for parents or teachers to print flash cards with key behaviour prompts or reminders.
01 How I did today
Self assessment about working at school
The first grid has a blank cell for the student’s name. Click on the ‘Quick edit’ button to type the name and ideally add a photo. Using 'Quick edit' allows you to make a temporary change while you are using the Activity. To make the change more permanent choose ‘Design Mode' from the 'Tools menu’. You can then use Save As to keep your changes.
The other grids cover good behaviour and success or need for help is specific subjects/lessons.
02 Behaviour – feelings
Self assessment about feelings
Student use this to write about how they feel now and then to reflect on their feelings during the day. The grids can be edited to meet the circumstances, and the last grid has blank cells for extra content. The grids have vocabulary for:
- How I feel now – good feelings,
- How I feel now – less good feelings.
- How I felt at school
- How the people acted towards me
There isn’t a starting grid with the name, but personal details could be recorded by typing or added to the last grid.
