Fall Social Emotional Learning Activities

Sale price$11.50

This fall social emotional learning resource is the perfect companion to your school lesson plans this season. It includes PRINTABLE & DIGITAL mini-lesson ideas and engaging activities on gratitude, manners, respect, and inclusion and builds important social-emotional skills.

Why focus on social-emotional learning in the fall?

The fall season is a good time to focus on gratitude with Thanksgiving. It is a time to reflect on how we treat others, and how we want to be treated. It’s the perfect opportunity to discuss inclusion with children and the importance of including others in all that we do. It is also a good time to discuss how good manners go hand in hand with respect and making others feel good.

What is the scope and sequence?

It includes 4 weeks of SEL lessons and activities in 4 themes for the fall. There are 5-8 lessons and activities for each theme.

  • Week 1: Gratitude & Thankfulness
  • Week 2: Manners
  • Week 3: Respect
  • Week 4: Diversity and Inclusion

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.
