How to Use the SEL Calendar

Download Kikori through Apple, Android or Desktop for free! Each of the activities for the calendar are available within the Kikori platform along with 600+ more experiential activities.

BONUS: We understand how important SEL frameworks are so we've aligned each activity with CASEL's Social Emotional Learning standards and 21st Century Skills to make finding the RIGHT activity for your youth easier than ever!

What are the Kikori daily themes?

Each day, the SEL Calendar provides you with an activity focused on the following daily Kikori themes:

Mindful Monday activities include meditations, visualizations and mindfulness

Together Tuesday activities involve team building and initiatives that build trust

Wellness Wednesday activities focus on ways to build physical and emotional health

Thoughtful Thursday activities use problem solving and reflection to help grow inward

Fun Friday activities are energizing activities that reinforce the importance of joy

How does Kikori ensure these activities build social emotional skills like self-awareness and relationship skills? Each activity provides you with instructions that follow the experiential learning cycle. This means the activities help youth actively engage and then provides reflection questions related to the activity.

These questions help youth reflect and build self- and social-awareness (what happened during the activity?), make meaningful connections to their own lives (how did what happened during the activity connect to other experiences?), and engage in personal growth (what are they going to take from this activity into their lives?)

And the National Day Activities?

Here at Kikori, we think it's important to educate our students on important days of the year and learn what they stand for. To make team building in the classroom or at youth development programs MEANINGFUL, we've included a special National Holiday for every day and a corresponding team building activity. We did our homework to find the best days for kids to celebrate!
