Why Teach SEL Skills?

Social emotional skills like self-awareness help kids to identify their emotions, recognize their strengths, set goals, and build a growth mindset.  Additionally,  self-management skills will help your students be ready to focus and learn in class.  By teaching them coping skills like breathing, mindfulness, and grounding exercises, they will learn to regulate emotions and build executive functioning skills like self-control.

Moreover, when you integrate social emotional learning into your classroom, you are also teaching students social awareness and healthy relationship skills. For example, students will learn how to develop empathy and respect for others, resolve conflicts peacefully, treat each other with kindness, and build healthy friendships.

Lastly, when you teach kids SEL skills, they learn responsible decision making.  For instance, prompts review how to deal with peer pressure, solve problems, and practice healthy, self-care habits.

Can I give this resource 10 stars? This resource does an amazing job of pairing visual aids with interactive activities in bite-sized portions. While I say “bite-sized”, each bite is so on-point with the topic and message. I love and appreciate so much the care and attention that is so clearly poured into these resources! Thank you for these resources and for their help facilitating the connection with students remotely.

Oh My God! what a beautiful, timeless, highly useful resource. This is one of the best resources I’ve purchased – i would want to give it 10 stars for content, ease of use & visuals!  Self-Awareness SEL Daily Check-In Journal: filled with beautiful visuals, lots of activities, pretend play (If I were…) for different feelings, different scenarios to focus on strengths.  Self Management SEL Daily Check-In Journal: filled with beautiful visuals, steps & activities for breathing, grounding techniques, movement, thinking, connection, executive functioning skills. I’m planning to use these with my little kid by showing & discussing different feelings & activities – to build a daily check-in habit & strong foundation for later years.

I love everything that WholeHearted School Counseling makes and this resource does not disappoint. There are so many options and variety to each section to use with my students. They’re so easy to use, full of detail that the students easily may relate to, they’re visually appealing and most importantly really helpful to provide opportunities for student self assessment, goal planning and self regulation! Every classroom (virtual or face to face) needs this resource!

I always love, love, love the material that WholeHearted School Counseling creates. This one is just as great as all the others. I’ve starting using it with my students as part of my weekly lessons with classes and they seem to enjoy doing it. I will also starting using it with individual students.
