It's good to be me!
This term we are exploring how good it is to be me. Every single one of us is different and we are all smart. We used the story about Elmer the elephant to explore how we should respect ourselves for who we are and respect others for who they are. If you have a look at the PowerPoint you will see what we talked about.
Classes followed the assembly up by looking at Elmer and his different coloured patches and added in what makes them who they are. Sometimes we talk about being ‘smart’. We are all smart and we need to understand how we are smart. Alex drew this lovely picture of Elmer and has been exploring how he is smart. He is art smart!
If you would like to know how you are smart, consider this list:
- Linguistic intelligence ("word smart")
- Logical-mathematical intelligence ("number/reasoning smart")
- Spatial intelligence ("picture smart")
- Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence ("body smart")
- Musical intelligence ("music smart")
- Interpersonal intelligence ("people smart")
- Intrapersonal intelligence ("self smart")
- Naturalist intelligence ("nature smart")
In recognising we are smart and different we can respect others too
