Activity Idea: My (Almost) Everything!

Preschool Activity QuickSource® reminds us that social/emotional activities focus on "helping children become caring, competent, and confident individuals" by nururing their sense of self, fostering their independence, encouraging them to make friends, and teaching them to share with others.

Here's an activity called My (Almost) Everything!  that will help children become aware of their personal likes and dislikes. Children can also express feelings and learn their basic information, such as name, age, family members, etc. For this activity, you will need Colorations® Simply Washable Tempera Paints and 12x18" White Sulphite Paper.

Materials Needed:
Colorations® Simpy Washable Tempera Paints (SWT16)
12x18" White Sulphite Paper (12SU)

Let's Get Started:
1. Have each child make handprints with paint on a sheet of paper, leaving room for text.

2. Have a list of ten questions, one for each finger.
My name is?
I live at?
My favorite color is?
My favorite game is?
My favorite food is?
My favorite animal is?
When I grow up, I want to be a?
I like to?
My wish is to?
If I could have a super power, it would be?

3. List their answers, one above each finger.

4. Display around the room.

If using POCET™, this activity corresponds with the devlopmental guidelines shown in SE1 Shows Awareness of Self and Knows Personal Information.
