Description

YOUR STUDENTS WILL LOVE THIS EACH KINDNESS BOOK COMPANION LESSON

Looking for an engaging way to teach Jacqueline Woodson’s Each Kindness?  Check out our quiz show style Each Kindness book companion lesson.  This highly engaging, interactive game show activity will have your students excited to participate.   And by the end of class, they will be begging to play more.  Your students will have tons of fun playing this SEL game.  On top of that, they get to use higher-level thinking skills as they make their way through the different categories.  

 

THE GAME SHOW CATEGORIES ARE:

  • ACT IT OUT: teams act out / role play the challenge prompt.
  • TRUE or FALSE: teams decide whether the statement is true or false.
  • SKETCH IT: teams quickly draw their answers.
  • IMAGINE IF: teams answer “Imagine If” questions, using their imagination & problem solving skills.
  • RISK: teams take a “risk” when they choose this category, since the type of question and/or challenge is not revealed until chosen.

 

WHAT’S SO UNIQUE ABOUT THIS LESSON?

The Game Show format is hands-on and experiential.  Not only does it encourage reflective, critical thinking, it ios designed for students to show off and build on their smarts in different ways.  Plus, the questions and challenges are 100% customizable so if you like, you can edit them to better fit your specific needs. Best of all, it’s super low-prep, perfect for all you busy counselors and teachers!

 

WAYS YOU CAN USE THIS SEL ACTIVITY:

  • Social emotional learning classroom lessons
  • Small group counseling
  • Distance Learning classes
  • Bibliotherapy
  • Teletherapy
  • School Counseling guidance lessons

Given that the GAME SHOW takes 40-60 minutes to play, and sometimes we just don’t have that much time….or that the GAME SHOW works best projected on a large screen, and sometimes the technology breaks down….or that there are days when we walk into the classroom and just know that a whole classroom game is not going to fly that day….and sometimes students need more quiet, reflective activities……I have included more than 6 additional formats that do not require the use of the internet.

 

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO PLAY THE GAME SHOW?

  • If you can, use the Google Slides or PowerPoint game on a Promethean White Board or projector
  • If using for distance learning, all players need internet access.
  • Want to go screen-free? No problem! This Game Show also comes with printable task cards with the same prompts as the Game Show challenges.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

I purchased this when we were doing distance learning, and definitely plan to use it now that we’re back in person. Each Kindness is just one of those books that touches you to the deepest core, I have to hold back tears when I do the read-aloud. The activities were fun enough while reinforcing that we need to learn to be kind. Thanks!

My students were not terribly interested in the book until I told them we were playing a Jeopardy game with it! Then it was GAME ON! Great resource!!!

This was an amazing resource. I’ve read this book before but struggled with how to follow up the lesson. This was perfection. The classes were engaged, and the point system kept them going to see how many points they could get before the end of the lesson.

I loved this resource. My students could see themselves in Maya and Chloe and really made them think. They love any type of game so this was very engaging for them.
