Classroom Activities to Boost Self-Confidence

Self-confidence is a critical part of growing up, and kids who struggle with it constantly question themselves and their own abilities.
Fortunately there are ways educators can help. Today on, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox, who is a veteran grade school teacher based on the East Coast as well as a prolific writer for our website, offers up some classroom activities designed to build self-confidence and get kids to feel proud of themselves.
Janelle’s ideas include:
  • Goal Setting
  • Reflection
  • Teacher Tips
  • And More!

In a paragraph entitled “Reflection,” Janelle notes: “Reflection is another self-confidence booster for students. Encourage students to reflect after each assignment that you give them. Ask students what they think went right with the activity as well as what they think caused them stress over the task. Then, have students share their responses with their classmates. This is a great way for students to see how their classmates and friends overcome their own problems, which in turn can help them with their own self-confidence.”
