    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?

    • The winter season is a great time to focus on giving around the holidays and Christmas.
    • It is a time to reflect on how to show self-love and learn to take care of ourselves.
    • Kids will have opportunities to practice mindfulness strategies, that are especially beneficial in the new year.
    • There are also many activities to help kids make friends and build friendships in the winter and during a Valentine's Day classroom party ("Love Day").

    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. 

    What does the mind+heart winter SEL resource include? 

    Look at the PREVIEW for a look at this SEL resource up close and the variety of lessons and activities included!

    The mind+heart SEL winter resource includes a variety of thought-provoking discussion topics and engaging activities to help reflect on important social and emotional skills that are used during winter, before the Christmas holidays, in the new year, and for Valentine's Day to provoke discussions amongst your kids.
