I Like Me! is a pro-active, research-based personalized program for children, preschool through grade two, that helps instill a healthy self-concept, develops early learning and reading skills and helps build character. I Like Me! is highly acclaimed by parents, teachers, administrators and sponsors.
The goal of Kindergartners Count, Inc., a U.S. 501(c)(3) international not-for-profit organization, is to empower children and help them to be healthy, successful young citizens.
There are two levels of program materials: I Like Me! for use kindergarten through grade two (available in English, Canadian English and Spanish); I Like Me! Preschool for use by younger children (available in English).
There are two components of I Like Me! -- the personalized I Like Me! child's book and the supplemental 12-week Teacher's/Leader's Guide. The greatest benefit to the child, based on research of the program, comes from the use of the 12-week I Like Me! program when it is used within a classroom setting. The Teacher's/Leader's Guide contains daily lesson plans, classroom exercises and parent/child activities.
Each class that receives the I Like Me! books is encouraged to integrate the supplemental 12-week Teacher's/Leader's Guide into the existing curriculum. This guide is designed to allow the teacher/leader the flexibility to use all or part of the guide.
Each of the 12 units in the Teacher's/Leader's Guide consists of:
