  • Grade 1
  • I Like Me – Activity #6: “I Like Me Booklet”

Activity #6: “I Like Me Booklet”

This activity further encourages students to think about what they like about themselves, including activities that they are good at and ideas about family and friends.


  • I Like Me set of booklet pages (provided)
  • Practice faces (provided)
  • Emotion picture cards (provided from a previous activity)
  • Paint (facial colours)
  • Paint brushes
  • Crayons
  • Wool
  • Stamp pad
  • Chart paper
  • Felt pens

Teacher Preparation:

  • On tag board, print enough of the I Like Me cover pages for each student
  • Print enough practice faces for each student
  • Print all ten I Like Me booklet pages so each student receives a set


Step by Step:

Cover Page

Step One: Provide each student with the cover page. Students paint the face on the cover page, including the ‘skin’ tone and all facial features. Allow paint to dry.

Step Two: Quick drawing lesson: Provide each student with the practice faces. These contain faces with lines to strategically place the features of the face. Talk about the four sections of the faces and where the eyes, nose and mouth are usually found. Have the students practice on four faces.

Step Three: Once the ‘face’ cover pages are dry, have the students draw their eyes, nose and mouth. Students outline their facial features in thick black felt pens.

Step Four: Add wool or other materials for ‘hair’.


Pages 1 & 2 – Self Portrait and Personal Information

Step Five: Students draw their self-portrait as well as complete their name, age, grade, hair and eye colour, and which hand they write with.

Step Six: For student thumbprints, have students dab their thumbs in a stamp pad and then onto the paper. Explain that everyone’s fingerprints are different. Have students look at each other’s thumbprints.


Page 3 – Do Fun Things With Me

Step Seven: Discuss with students what they’re good at, whether it’s at home, at school, with friends, or on their own. List the brainstormed ideas on chart paper.

Step Eight: Students use the brainstormed ideas to complete page 3.

Step Nine: Students fill in the blanks with what they’re good at and what they like about themselves.


Page 4 & 5 – My Family Cares

Step Ten: Explain to the students that there are many people in their lives who care about them. Ask students to identify members of their family, including the family pet, if they wish. Have students identify the reasons why their family is special.

Step Eleven: On chart paper, write the sentence stem: “My family is special because…” and have the students brainstorm ideas.

Step Twelve: Students use the brainstormed ideas to complete pages 4 & 5.


Pages 6 & 7 – My Friends Care

Step Thirteen: Discuss with students the many friends they have who care about them. Talk about what makes a friend special and have students identify what qualities they like in a friend.

Step Fourteen: On chart paper, write the sentence stem: ”My friends are special because…” and have the students brainstorm ideas.

Step Fifteen: Students use the brainstormed ideas to complete pages 6 & 7.


Pages 8 & 9 – I Have Feelings

Step Sixteen: Review the kinds of situations that would make them feel: happy, sad, surprised, angry, etc. Have Emotion Cards on display for students to view.

Step Seventeen: Students complete the sentence stems and drawings on pages 8 & 9.


Page 10 – Goals for the Future

Step Eighteen: Teacher discusses ideas for the following sentence stems:

  • When I grow up, I hope _____________.
  • If I could have three wishes for my future, I would wish for:___________.

Step Ninteen: Students complete the final page using the ideas generated.

Step Twenty: Teacher staples all the pages of each booklet together for each student.


End Product:

A class-set of I Like Me! booklets. All of the booklets are very unique in that they individually represent each student. Students can read their booklets to each other before they are put on display.
