My strengths.

I found this inside my son’s first semester journal. Once weekly, he attends a different school with other kids a little more like him, and changes teachers each semester. This gives him the stability of his home school and all it has to offer, plus exposure to a variety of teachers and students between both schools combined. It’s such an important skill to identify that the things you believe you are good at aren’t necessarily the same things that others believe are good about you. Not only does this chart help him identify what he likes about himself in comparison to what others like about him, it validates the understanding that you can like yourself outside of the approval of others. It is helpful to recognize how others see you, but it is not the only lens through which to see yourself. We might all benefit from filling out a chart like this from time to time.
