Are you looking for fun and meaningful ways to keep your students engaged this winter? This Winter social-emotional learning resource is the perfect companion to your holiday (Christmas), winter, and Valentine's Day lesson plans in the kindergarten, first grade, or second grade classroom. The mini-lessons and activities focus on giving, self-love, mindfulness, and friendship.
Why focus on social-emotional learning in the winter?
What is the scope and sequence?
It includes 4 weeks of SEL lessons and activities in 4 themes for the winter. There are 7-8 mini-lessons and activities for each theme.
Theme 1: Giving
Theme 2: Self-Love
Theme 3: Friendship
Theme 4: Mindfulness
I suggest teaching one lesson/activity per day. They can be easily integrated into your morning meeting, read-aloud time, writing block, or during brain breaks and transitions. This resource was made with the K-2 classroom teacher in mind but would work well with any childhood educator or school counselors working with groups of children.
