Kindergarten SEL Tools
As part of a social emotional learning activity this year, our kindergarten students crated a "tool" box that held "tools" that helped them various social emotional situations. For example, they had a "personal boundary bubble" that they would wear if they felt like their personal space was not respected. They also had "Other peoples socks" that helped them think about what it would be like to walk in other people's shoes.
As we came to the end of the year, the students came into the Lab after working on a design thinking activity with their teacher. They brought in a "tool" that they wanted to build. Out came the pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, bottle caps, toilet paper rolls, etc. and off they went to follow their plan and build.
