Welcome Back to the CLS Daily SEL lessons! Due to your incredible feedback, we’ve decided to keep posting daily lessons, Monday through Friday until June 12. It is our hope that these continue to be helpful in giving children the needed skills to improve mental health and social-emotional skills.
This week we are focusing on Friendship
Weekly Focus: Friendship
What is a friend?
What words describe a good friend?
Write a thank you note to a friend, and tell them why you care about them. Give an example, something they have done or said that you want to remind them of. Share your story of gratitude.
Watch the video
How do you feel after watching the video? List 3 emotions you are having.
Sometimes we jump to conclusions and go to feeling disappointed right away about others, even our friends. Think about Being Curious…Not Furious. Be less judging and more forgiving.
Think about a friend who has recently disappointed you. Give them grace.
Oftentimes we learn of or hear about social injustice but we do not feel equipped to make a difference. The first step in becoming an advocate is to understand that we are all different and accept that difference is good!
Honest and courageous conversations are just the beginning of our work for social justice. When we develop safe spaces to have these conversations in schools, we work together to dismantle oppression. Let's get talking!
There have been many conversations going on about equity and equality in education. You might hear these words on TV or on social media, but what do these words mean? What is the difference? Our new SEL lesson offers an answer.
