Occupational Therapy, Activities



In this activity, your client or child will be able to sort their self-talk thoughts by identifying what is positive and negative self-talk. The “Inner Sun” represents positive self-talk and might include statements like, “I’m doing my best” or “My friends like me.” The “Inner Shadow” represents negative self-talk which might include statements that undermine self-confidence.

This activity also helps develop pre-writing and writing skills by tracing the shape of the sun and shadow and using the lines in each circle to write a few examples of each type of talk. Blank slots are available for parents/teachers to have a space to write in thoughts that are specific to the child they are working with.
