Students Benefit from Self-Refection Too!

Have you ever considered having the students you currently work use self-reflection to help create a list of advice or tips for other students for the next school year?  You could ask the children to submit tips and suggestions that make functional tasks easier for them.  This activity will hopefully empower the children to see that they can help others (and sneak in handwriting practice if they need it).  It may also allow them to think about different aspects of functional tasks possibly leading to goal setting for the following school year.

My Memory Book digital download encourages self reflection for students on accomplishments, improvements, challenges, goals and more.  Students can practice handwriting and drawing skills while creating a memory keepsake book.  This download includes the materials to create one 11 page memory book (available in three different font styles).

Suggestions for Student Self-Reflection Questions

1.  What do you do to be more organized at school?

2.  What is your favorite physical education activity to participate in?

3.  If an activity has to be adapted for you to participate in gym class or recess, what have you found to be the most helpful adaptation?

4.  Is there anything that makes getting dressed easier for you?

5.  Is there a certain entrance to the school you find easiest to enter in at?

6.  Is there a staircase that is easier to navigate than others?

7.  Is there a bathroom at the school that is easier to use than others?

You don’t even need to suggest these questions.  Maybe just throw it out there to the students from now until the end of the school year.  Set up an easel in the therapy room or carry a note pad.  When a student thinks of a tip write it down.  Once all the suggestions have been gathered, organize them into categories.  Then next school year hand out your tip sheet to all the students on your caseload. 

Here is a practice sheet from the My Memory Book complete packet.  You can download below for free.  It is available in single line, dotted line (Zaner-Bloser type format) and double line (Handwriting Without Tears type format).
