Cupcake is an adorable book about a plain vanilla cupcake that isn't picked to eat. Cupcake decides that he must find a way to make himself more exciting, but ends up making a friend in the process. Students can learn about self-esteem through Cupcake, having to list things that they like about themselves. I have a worksheet that students can use. Also, you can bring in plain white cupcakes for students to snack on. There is a recipe in the back of the book.
I have found that the simple worksheet works best for K-1 and the other (right) can be used with 2-4.
I also allow students to decorate their cupcake to highlight how unique we all are.
This is a wonderful way to promote your school counseling program. Plus, it helps beautify your hallways and educate other students as they pass by.
