I Am Amazing:
A Program Promoting Health, Safety, and Self-Esteem
A complete health education curricula
just waiting for you to use in your preschool or childcare program!
By Kathryn Breighner & Deborah Rohe
I Am Amazing is a kit filled with hundreds of hands-on, developmentally appropriate activities all centered on a child's total well being. By introducing young children to topics concerning their health, safety, and self-esteem, they discover how daily decisions affect their health and well-being, and become better prepared to make positive, healthy choices as they grow. Through these experiences, preschoolers and kindergartners learn about health concepts and also develop independent thinking, problem solving, decision making, cooperation, communication and motor skills--all of the developmental skills you want for young children while learning about health and safety!
I Am Amazing is built around nine teaching units that utilize five learning centers: Creative Arts, Dramatic Play, Language Arts, Science & Discovery, and Table Games.
- My Amazing Body familiarizes children with the name, location, and function of specific body parts and how they work together.
- My Five Senses introduces children to their five senses and how they are used in discovering the world around them.
- Amazing Me helps children to develop an appreciation for differences and promotes positive self-esteem.
- Our Families and Friends explores the many different kinds of families and their important roles in providing love and care.
- My Feelings and Yours gives children insight into their own feelings and those of other people.
