This months theme is "Let's Celebrate the Magic of the End of the School Year Together" with the help of a few of our friends from under the sea.... We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! In June, we also celebrate Pride and Asian Pacific Heritage Month. There is SO much to celebrate this month!
Welcome to Kikori! Every month we share free experiential Social-Emotional Learning (eSEL) activities for educators everywhere. Whether you have 5 or 60 minutes a day to focus on SEL skills, our goal is to provide you with options for relevant, engaging activities EVERY DAY that are aligned to your students’ developmental needs. Our calendar is always designed with YOU in mind!
As we approach the end of the school year, we find ourselves amidst a unique moment of reflection and transition. The past months have been filled with remarkable growth, resilience, and countless learning experiences for our students. As we bid farewell to this academic year, it's crucial to provide our students with the opportunity to reflect on their journey, celebrate their achievements, and nurture their hopes for the future. Our eSEL activities are specifically designed to support students in this reflective process, empowering them to look back on the year they had and look forward to the next school year with a renewed sense of hope and enthusiasm. Let's guide them through this transformative experience and equip them with the social-emotional skills they need to thrive in the coming year. ✨
Middle & High School
Since April we have reimagined the way we share calendars with our users. Kikori previously offered 3 different monthly calendars - our SEL Calendar, Morning Meeting, and Advisory Calendars. In order to streamline our process and make things crystal clear for educators everywhere, we now offer 1 monthly Kikori eSEL Calendar that you can access based on your grade level needs:
Kikori Elementary eSEL Calendar (K-5)
Kikori Advisory eSEL Calendar (Middle & High School)
The calendars share a monthly theme, and activities within the two clickable calendars are specially catered to that age range. If you want to specify for your student grade further, click on the correct grade level variation within the activity! We also encourage you to explore our “Variations” offered within individual Kikori activities.

Practice those ever-important social skills with Greeting Activity
Encourage connection with a Sharing or Acknowledging Activity
Facilitate an interactive National Day Activity (i.e. Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day, National Ice Cream Day, etc.)
Flex essential muscles with our Day-of-the-Week Activities for Mindful Monday, Together Tuesday, Wellness Wednesday, Thoughtful Thursday and Fun Friday
