April 2023 - Self- Awareness

Welcome to Spring!! May this spring break bring you the relaxation you deserve! 

Thank you to all of the parents and guardians who tried out our healthy living activities last month. We love hearing about the things you do at home to support what your child is learning at school. Our students learned a lot of new things about the importance of getting enough sleep and eating foods that fuel our bodies. 

This month we are focusing on self-awareness. Self-awareness is defined by the conscious knowledge of one's own character, feelings, motives and desires.  

At Glendon school we will be focusing on self-reflection, and positive self-talk and how they can help our mental health.  When we are aware of our thoughts, feelings, strengths and weaknesses, it builds our character and our self-awareness.  Spending time alone helps with focusing on ourselves. 

Ideas to help with self-reflection: 

  • Journal writing
  • Walking in nature
  • Drawing/coloring
  • Positive self-talk 

Here is an activity sheet for you and your child to complete together. 

Activity on reflection


Positive self-talk can boost self-confidence, self-control, self-esteem, and influence impulse decisions. When kids are in situations where they question themselves, or put themselves down, they can end up struggling even more. 

An idea on how to remind ourselves to have positive thoughts: Make a bracelet, and associate each color to one positive thought. When you or your child wears the bracelet, they will be reminded of all the positive thoughts they discussed with you.
