Your Earth Month SEL Calendar for April

Updated: Nov 11, 2022

Spring is upon us, and April is our month to celebrate the Earth! Earth Day is April 22, however we think the planet is so important that we're celebrating all month long! As nature begins budding around us, it is the perfect time for you and your students to appreciate all that is coming to life! Kikori compiled a monthly calendar of outdoor, adventure, and nature activities for your students to sink their feet into the ground and connect to their inside worlds by connecting to the outdoor world.

All of the Planners are CLICKABLE to take you straight into the activities and national days! Download the Entire April Calendar Below:

Here’s what you’ll love about the Kikori April SEL Calendar:

  • SEL activities to increase connection to self, others, and the planet!

  • Proven SEL activities help students build students’ sense of PRIDE!

  • Easy to FIND and USE during Morning Meetings, Advisory Sessions, and more!

  • Relevant and FUN National day themes and activities!

  • SEL Standards-aligned and simple to integrate into lesson plans!

How to Use the April 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!
