A finished shield
A young girl holds up her completed shield. She painted some great pictures to go with her words. She said the best thing about her is that she shares with others. She is satisfied or pleased when she learns more things. She said the best thing she does is love others. And others tell her that she’s a good artist. Everyone wrote thoughtful responses. When they had trouble thinking of something to write, the staff members would ask them questions to get them thinking and to come up with ideas themselves that they could write on their shields. It was a good project to get the kids working and thinking about self esteem.
