Self-Perception Worksheet

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 1 page | Years: 3 - 4

Identify strengths and areas of growth by asking students to reflect on their self-image, self-esteem, and ideal self.

What Is Self-Perception?

Self-perception is the way one sees themself as a person. There are three components that make up our self-perception: self-image, self-esteem and our ideal self.

This worksheet encourages students to explore their self-perception. The first section asks students to list things they like about themselves or things that they do well. The second section asks the students to think about two areas of weakness and develop them into growth statements.

Ways to Use This Self-Esteem Worksheet 

Some students can find self-reflection challenging. As teachers, it’s important to realise that some students may be willing to share their responses openly with the class, while others may wish to keep their reflections private. It’s important to respect these personal choices!
