Primary 1-4, Primary 5-8
To explore the idea of You Have Value, by reminding students that there is only one of them in the world.
We walk away knowing
There's only one me! I'm irreplaceable.
There's only one you!
This fun poem is an easy way to reinforce the idea that each and every one of us is a unique individual.
Read the poem together as a class. There is also a black and white version which can be coloured in.
- In what ways are you different from everyone else on the earth?
- How does it make you feel to know that you are a one and only, never to be repeated human?
- What do you think it means to "take your place, run your race"?
This poem would lead well into The One and Only activities.
Another fun idea might be for each student to come up with a personal motto and a theme tune!
