What are the Kikori daily themes?

Each day, the November 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?)

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!

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. During November, this includes Stress Awareness Day (Nov 3), Veteran's Day (Nov 11) and the National Day of Listening (Nov 26). We also think it's important to the lighter side of life, for example, National Doughnut Day (Nov 5), America Recycles Day (Nov 15) and Take a Hike Day (Nov 17)!

To make team building in the classroom or at youth development programs MEANINGFUL, we've included a special National Holiday for every day in November and a corresponding team building activity. We did our homework to find the best days for kids to celebrate.

What's in store for November?

November has great activities that will help youth practice kindness and build self-awareness now that students have gotten to know each other. This is the opportunity to really build a positive, kind culture in your classroom! Along with the monthly printable, we have also created weekly planners that provide you with extra space for notes.
