New Good to be Me Foundation activity plans

These Foundation Stage activities support the SEAL Good to be Me theme. The first helps children to understand they may not be good at everything but can be proud of what they can do. It uses a Persona doll and the picture book A Chick Called Saturday, by Joyce Dunbar. The second is based on Julia Donaldson’s Sharing a Shell story and enables children to think about what each brings to the class community.
