Boost Self-Concept and Personal Growth With Positive Actions

KindergartenLesson: 701

Positive Actions for Kids' Self-Concept and Personal Growth

"It is one thing to learn; it is another thing to put learning into action."

This evidence-based social-emotional learning lesson marks the beginning of Positive Action Unit 7, where students review all the concepts they have learned throughout the curriculum. In this unit, they discover a vital lesson: knowing positive actions is only the beginning; doing is where the real change happens.

The lesson opens with the kindergarten students finally arriving before the gates of Castle Self-Concept. After traversing three lands, venturing to six destinations, and collecting six keys, they are finally learning the secret inside the castle—the secret to health, happiness, and success.

Two lovable puppets, Picks-It Raccoon and Nix-It Panda, await them by the gate. The other animals from the jungle and forest also join them, excited to use the keys they have collected together. However, Picks-It surprises them with some news: they cannot use their keys yet.

The students and the other animals must learn how to use the keys to open the gates. The keys can only be powered by remembering the Positive Action concepts and applying them to all areas of life—physical, intellectual, social, and emotional.

"In this unit, they discover a vital lesson: knowing positive actions is only the beginning; doing is where the real change happens."

At first, the students worry that the unit and the challenge will be hard. However, realizing they are now equipped with positive actions and enhanced skills, they feel ready to face it confidently.

As a preparation for their test, the teacher leads a quick review of each unit. Students are asked questions, and if they struggle to remember, the teacher helps them. Together, the class jogs down memory lane and looks back on the lessons they have learned during their adventures.

In their jog, the students remember the positive actions that the Goodbody children and Positron have taught them. They also recall what they have learned in the Jungle of Self-Management and Getting Along With Others Island. Their journey in these destinations has instilled in them valuable skills they can use beyond the classroom.

After jogging their memories, students can easily recall the lessons they have learned in their last two adventures at Lake Self-Honesty and Mount Self-Improvement. These places have taught them to be honest about themselves, take responsibility, and keep growing—all essential for personal growth.

As the lesson ends, students feel empowered and more motivated to continue learning. They look forward to tomorrow when they will test their understanding and measure their progress. If there is one thing the students have learned to value, it is to pursue greatness!
