Me, Myself and I
This weeks theme was a lot of fun. But I say that every week, don’t I? I just really like my job, okay.
Doing research on themes and when they are usually addressed in preschool, I learned that this is a theme that usually happens at the beginning of the school year as a ‘Get To Know You.’ But, we already know each other. A LOT. So I thought at the beginning of the calendar year would be a better time. Sure, why not.
This was also the week I got myself a laminator and my life was changed forever.
Face It, You’re Weird
And then we read a lot of books.
Incredible Me by Kathi Appelt
I Like Myself by Karen Beaumont
I’m Gonna Like Me–Letting Off a Little Self Esteem by Jamie Lee Curtis
I really liked all these books but am curious to if it was just the ones I found or if it’s a thing in self esteem books for preschoolers that all the characters were girls. Believe me, boys have problems with self esteem too. Most other themes I’ve found have a lot of books that do a good job of making the character rather genderless or ambiguous. But maybe it was just the ones I picked.
