I AM Noticed Core Content

Focus: Application

Lesson 7.1: A New Letter To Self

Supplies needed: Journal or paper, writing and drawing supplies


Share the following concepts with the students:

Remember you spend more time with yourself than with any other person on the planet.  So how are you? Have you been practicing the I AM Noticed Cycle? Do you feel more confident?  How have you grown since the last letter you wrote to yourself? 

Instruct the students to write a new letter to self.  Ask them to use the art of discovery and ask questions like: What are some things that I really like about myself? What are my favorite things to do?  What are some positive words that describe me?  What is good?  What is hard?  What do I want to do? 


After each student has had a chance to write a new letter to self, you may want to suggest they reread the first letter to self from lesson 1.1.

Seeing our own growth over time can be really inspiring. 

Do you remember this fun fact from our very first lesson???  Research shows that self-awareness is directly related to both emotional intelligence and success. Self -awareness helps us make more informed decisions and contribute to our own overall well being.

Lesson 7.2: How Are You Practicing Confidence

Supplies needed: journal optional

Share the following concepts with the students:

You might remember in Lesson 1.3 everyone was encouraged to commit to growing their own confidence by practicing the I AM Noticed Cycle.  Confidence will look different for each student and now is an opportunity to celebrate their individuality and growth.

Instruct the students to self reflect on their own confidence and how it has grown.  Ask them to consider the following questions:  What makes me feel confident?  What am I good at?  What makes me good at that?  What makes me believe in myself? What are my favorite things about me?  How has my confidence grown?

Once students have had a chance to self reflect encourage the class to come together and share.  

I AM Noticed Leaders are confident.
Everyone can choose to be an I AM Noticed Leader.

Thank you for encouraging students to choose confidence.


We hope that these lessons have become a part of your daily routine and that you will continue to practice the I AM Noticed Cycle.



An extended lesson option:  If time allows give students the opportunity to share their answer to one of the above questions aloud to the class.  This activity is designed to give students the experience of practicing their confidence.  

How confident are you feeling?  That answer changes as we experience difference circumstances through out the day -- even for the most confident of people.  Practicing the I AM Noticed Cycle has proven to help students, staff, and family members to stay in and get back into the confidence zone.

Lesson 7.3: We Are Poster

Supplies needed: large piece of paper or white board, markers

Individual confidence leads to cultural confidence and a sense of belonging.


Share the following concept with the students:

Remember how important it is to have strong I AMs as individuals and how that leads to a more positive culture.  Positive adjectives are a great way to bring our class together.  These can become our class "WE ARE" statements.  

Instruct students to write the words "WE ARE" really big.  Have the class brainstorm and take turns writing positive words all around the "WE ARE" that describe you as a group. 

Your group can share this WE ARE art with your entire school as a visual reminder of how amazing you are.
