My future

A reflection over who I am and where I want

Grade 1–3



Hand out the notes with words/figures to the students. Let them read the words and underline the characteristics in which they can identify themselves the most. If one student wants to underline “all the words” – help to choose the words that suit the best. There is an illustration connected to each word, so that the students more easily can relate to the characteristics.

Save the notes in a suitable place, so that it is possible to bring them forward later. In this way, the students get a chance to discover eventual changes in the way they look at themselves, thus becoming aware of their development process.
