Loneliness

Read through the Kid's Guide to feeling lonely by clicking on the picture below.  Create your own comic strip poster (like the ones in the book) to show anyone feeling lonely at school what they could do to help them overcome their feelings of loneliness and become more confident.  Perhaps you could create your own character like the ones on the picture below. Bring it in to show your teacher and share with the class.

Self Esteem - Who am I?

View yourself in a mirror.  Talk to a family member or friend about what you see.  Then, looking closely at the shape of your face and features, draw a self-portrait from the top of your head to your shoulders.  Around the outside of your portrait write 5 positive things about yourself, or, if you find that difficult, 5 things that others may say about you. For example: that you are a great friend or that you have an amazing smile.  Bring your portrait into school to share with your teacher and class.
