Only a short post today but hopefully useful, make these little books to high light what children can do "assessing self". Or to enable them to think of things they (or you) may like to be doing next, when they have achieved it they can decorate that person. This could even be done with one particularly hard to achieve skill, with child decorating each time they achieve it.
