Weave experiential Social Emotional Learning (eSEL) activities into your school day from the moment they walk in the door through Lunch to your after school programs!
How Does Kikori Fit in Your School Day?
Morning Meeting & Advisory
Bring sunshine to your classroom every morning with Kikori activities that welcome your students with consistency, build a sense of community and bring joy and fun to your classroom. Kikori activities align with the Responsive Classroom framework and include Greetings, Sharings, daily activities, Morning Message for Elementary students; as well as Acknowledgements and Morning Announcements for Middle School and High School.
What is the Holy Grail of experiential, Social Emotional Learning? When you are able to weave it into your core classes! With Kikori activities, you can bring meaningful connection-building games into your math, reading or writing class so that students are learning content in the way they know best – through play!
In order for young brains to organize the information they have learned, they have to take breaks in between (or even during!) lessons. Kikori Energizers are quick, social activities that involve movement. If you have an academic topic you are working on, Kikori provides you with modifications to play the game while also continuing learning, all while having fun!
Community meals can be different things for students based on how you cultivate this time and space. How can you make sure that lunchtime is a time for building relationships, sharing skills and exposing students to new food and traditions? Build in conversation starters and practice activities that builds skills of respect, kindness and appreciation for others. To make this really stick, build Mix-it-up days into your school years!
Recess is one of the most important times of day for our students to practice social skills and relationship building. Introducing activities that invite high energy such as tag games and team building activities can help students get their energy out and socialize! Watch and see how these activities transform through students’ imagination as well. This is a great place to see how all of our lessons and skill-building translates into the ‘real world’!
