Children learn best by doing. When children perform the ritual activities of each day, they begin to develop self-confidence. The moment children feel good about themselves and their accomplishments is when other skills develop.This collection of activities is a great way to promote children's self-esteem by encouraging active participation. Based on the songs from the CD by Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer, Help Yourself is filled with fun and creative ways to use the songs as a springboard into a curriculum for promoting self-esteem. Each activity includes a list of materials needed, directions, discussion ideas for talking with children, and variations for even more activities.
