Objective: To raise self-esteem by saying positive things about each other.
In circle time, ask one child to leave the room, then ask the class to describe the good qualities that child has. For example, “James helps others. I think that’s cool”.
Pick two children who want to share their chosen qualities with James. Invite James back to hear what was said about him then, and he has to guess who said what. If James selects correctly, he has to say thank you and let others know how that makes him feel.
I have played this for years and always had positive feedback. No negative comments are allowed!
