Designed for schools that want to build on the SEAL programme for primary schools and really focus on positive reinforcement, this book supplements the Primary SEAL resources and covers a huge range of issues which affect self-esteem and self-worth. Each topic has an introduction, an activity page and full instructions for carrying out the activity.

The first part of this book deals with the child?s self-image and contains activities to build self-worth and self-esteem. It explores feelings in the context of the child as an individual, developing self-awareness and helping the child to realise that it really is "Good to be me". The 50 activities help children understand how and why feelings lead them to behave the way they do - particularly the feelings of being excited, proud, surprised, hopeful, disappointed, worried and anxious.

Building effective relationships with others has a huge impact on self-confidence and the skills needed are developed in the second part in the same activity-based way. Many of the activities concentrate on building community within the school, concentrating on caring for others and teamwork.

All the supplementary materials are supplied on the included CD-ROM for ease of reproduction.

Peter Clutterbuck has been a prolific author of educational texts for many years. As a practising and wholly committed classroom teacher, he has been able to collect tried and tested activities and create and trial interesting new exercises that have proved to be not only educationally successful but also eagerly anticipated and enjoyed by both students and teachers. Peter?s books are always practical and user-friendly. The activities challenge students and generate an enthusiastic desire for learning.
