Kikori February SEL Calendar

Updated: Jan 26, 2023

Happy February, Kindness Month, and Black History Month!


This month, our SEL Calendar provides you with two daily activities focused on kindness and learning about Black History. Acts of kindness can make the world a happier place for everyone! They can boost feelings of confidence, a sense of belonging, happiness, and optimism. They encourage others to repeat the good deeds they've experienced themselves – leading to a more positive community! Black History Month is a time for all of us to acknowledge key Black leaders from our past and present. It's an opportunity to spotlight and celebrate the achievements that African Americans have accomplished in this country, despite the history of racism and oppression.


All of the activities are clickable and take you straight into the WebApp where you can find facilitation steps!

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 students to celebrate!
