Classroom Activity Inspired by I Don’t Want to Be a Frog
by Alexie Basil
Accepting and loving ourselves isn’t always easy. It’s especially true for young children who are still forming their identities.
In this video, kindergarten teacher Kaitlyn Kazalunas explains why I Don’t Want to Be a Frog is useful for teaching self-acceptance, and she shares the creative classroom activity she uses with her students.
The activity prompts students to draw and describe themselves. Here are some examples by the students in Kaitlyn’s class!
