Self-Awareness can be described as having a clear perception of your personality, including strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions. Self-portraits are a great way for our girls to explore the concept of self. A child's self-portrait allows us to see themselves through their own eyes. Its always fascinating to me how each girl's unique personality truly shines through their self representation.
Meaningful conversation erupted from the table as the girls began making discoveries about themselves and each other as they observed their face in the mirrors.
step 1: observation by discovering lines on the face
My hair are lines and my eyelashes too! My hair is on top of my head. Girls don't have beards like boys.- Emma
step 4: graphing
The girls then met whole group to show their portraits to their friends. The girls each took a turn graphing what color they thought their hair was. This activity encouraged counting using one to one correspondence, number identification, number writing, and beginning graphing skills.
