Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Brainstorm

Ask the children "what is a compliment? What should you do if someone gives you a compliment?"

You could also talk about "what is criticism?" and "is criticism always bad?"

Act it out

'Teen-age' rag dolls

The children could act out giving and receiving criticism.

Give a compliment

Cards with names of everyone in the group (including adults)

Take out the name of the person you're offering the cards to, so they can't choose themself.

Compliments Chart

Giving and receiving compliments as part of a language group. This is a good way to boost children's self esteem.

Materials:

Compliment prompt cards, with or without visual support, as appropriate.

Compliments chart, with each child's name on the left side, with a space on the right side for the chosen compliment to be stuck.

For example:


Blu-tac to stick the compliment cards on to the chart, and the chart on to the wall.

You will need to explain what a compliment is - a positive comment about another person that makes them feel good. It needs to be genuine!

You can keep a note of the compliments each child is given over all the sessions of the group. They can get a certificate / note at the end with all their compliments on for them to keep.

You can use this with younger children if you help them to think about what a compliment is. If they find it difficult you can make it easier by asking them to 'say something nice' to the person next to them.
