Strength Cards


Strength cards showing different positive attributes. They can be used in a variety of ways to help children to recognise that we all have strengths and to acknowledge their own strengths.


Why do you need this?

Strength cards can help children recognise and acknowledge their own strengths, fostering a positive self-image and boosting self-esteem. By identifying their unique qualities and abilities, students can develop a greater sense of confidence and self-worth.


Encouraging students to focus on their strengths can build resilience and help them cope with challenges and setbacks. By recognising their abilities and positive attributes, children can develop a more optimistic outlook and feel better equipped to overcome obstacles.


Strength cards can highlight the diversity of strengths and talents among individuals. By showcasing a range of positive attributes, teachers can emphasise the value of differences and promote acceptance and appreciation of others' strengths.


How and when might you use this?

These cards can be used in a variety of ways:

· Circle time - children encourage each student to choose a card that resonates with them and share why they selected that particular strength.

· Individual reflection - Encourage them to reflect on times when they have demonstrated that strength and how it has positively impacted them or others.

· Group discussions - Pose questions such as, "Which strength do you admire in someone else?" or "How can we use our strengths to support each other?"

· Peer recognition - Encourage students to recognize and celebrate each other's strengths.

· Goal setting - They can choose a Strength card that represents a quality they want to develop further or a goal they want to work towards.
