Enjoy Kikori's first-ever monthly Social Emotional Learning lesson planner this May!
The end of the school year is nearly here! In order to make your life easier for the upcoming month, Kikori has created a May SEL Calendar to help you plan ahead. Each day has a team building activity that will help you bring social emotional learning to your classroom with five thoughtful daily themes.
By using a different focus each day of the week, your students will get to work a different heart, brain and body muscle group each day!
The FIVE daily themes include:
Mindful Monday: Meditation, visualizations, mindful practice
SEL Skills ~ Self-awareness, Self-management
Together Tuesday: Team building, trust activities, challenge course initiatives
SEL Skills ~ Self-awareness, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills
Wellness Wednesday: Nutritional & physical health, connection to nature
SEL Skills ~ Self-management
Thoughtful Thursday: Problem-solving, reflection, goal setting, journaling
SEL Skills ~ Self-awareness, Social Awareness, Responsible Decision-making
Fun Friday: Games, poetry jams, music productions, theatre, comedy
SEL Skills ~ Social Awareness, Relationship Skills
