I Can Calendar
Self-confidence is the steppingstone to mastering new things; by believing in themselves, children will find it easier to believe in their ability to succeed.
You can make an I Can calendar, just like Elmo’s. What new things are you learning this week?
- Have a grown-up print out the calendar. Actually, print out a few, so that you can fill them in week after week.
- Write your new skills into the squares, day by day. If you’ve mastered something completely, give yourself a star sticker, or color in a star.
- If you’re still working on it, keep trying! Draw a smiley face in the square to remind yourself that you’re working on it, and you’ll get there. You just haven’t mastered it
- Ask a grown-up to help you hang the calendar on a wall. After you have several calendars hanging up, review them. Can you believe all the amazing things you’ve accomplished?!
