What makes me special?

Homework task – What do I like about me?

For this activity: Have students work on the What Makes Me Special Homework Book in their own time. Remind students that the workbook can be a good reminder of the things they like about themselves, and the things that others like about them.

This is an important celebration of difference but can also enhance the way we talk to ourselves (more positive self-talk and less inner criticism), and increase our confidence and resilience. This can make us better friends, and less vulnerable to peer pressure.
