Board games and sports are important in a child's social emotional development. These activities teach valuable skills! What are some games you like playing in class with your students? Take time and think about what skills they are working on!
What skills might you teach? What strategies might you put in place? Let's share.
I love this SEL Journal! Use this journal to teach SEL skills throughout the whole year! Skills targeted include self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationships, and decision-making. Every day contains one prompt, so there are five prompts per week for a period of 35 weeks. This allows for 175 daily prompts for the entire year. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Social-Emotional-Learning-Journal-for-Little-Learners-3826556
Start fresh every day. Such an important classroom mantra for educators and for kids.
I really believe in this. It's okay if kids take baby steps in the right direction.
Mindfulness is a big deal, so I love sharing new strategies you can try with your students. Have kids close their eyes and think of any color. Then, picture 10 things that color. Remind students to slowly breathe in and out as they picture their items. While it only takes a few minutes, it's a great strategy to help re-center and re-focus your learners!
