STUDENTS LOVE THESE SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING ACTIVITIES!
Liven up your morning meetings and small groups with these Social Emotional Learning Digital Spinners and printable dice! With 24 different SEL topics, you are sure to find what you need. In addition to using these fun interactive SEL activities as part of your morning meetings, they work great for circle time, brain breaks, and other community building activities. Likewise, if you’re a school counselor, use these digital spinners and dice in classroom guidance lessons, lunch bunches, small groups and individual counseling.
These digital spinners work great for teletherapy sessions and distance learning. Moreover, they can be used in the classroom displayed on a smart board or computer screen. And if you’re looking for a more hands-on kinesthetic approach, use the printable dice instead. In addition, these social emotional learning activities make a great counseling office functional decor.
Each Spinner and/or dice includes anywhere from 6 to 18 questions in total.
An interactive option that directs you to an external website accessible on any device complete with sound effects, and that allows you to remove the prompts after they have been played. To play, just click on the spinner. (Note: images are a bit blurry due to the web based hosting)
Videos of the PowerPoint continuous loop presentations. To “spin” just press the play or pause buttons.
The “spinners” operate as a super fast looping slide show presentation, allowing you to add or delete any of the slides. To “spin,” start the slide show, press the letter “P” to stop and the space bar to start up again.
The printable version is formatted as dice and can be used like “icebreaker thumb balls”. Comes in 6 different printable options (small and large sizes, and either full color, light color, or black and white printing). Prep is required.

This is an awesome resource! Easy to use and very engaging for the students. My students love it and are always asking to do one. Thanks so much for making it so easy to use.

This is a fun one that you can do with kids online. I shared my screen and gave them control to spin it. It has some great ideas that aren’t the typical coping skills you always see.

What a clever idea! I used this in individual sessions in-person with students, but plan to also use it for remote sessions as well. My son also liked playing when I was testing it out. I used it mostly on the i-pad so far, but it would great on a computer too. Thank you for the creative ideas!
