Activities for Building Character and Social-Emotional Learning PreK–K
Build attitudes of respect and caring, reduce problem behaviors, empower students to solve problems, and educate the whole child with the flexible, user-friendly activity guides in the Safe & Caring Schools® series. The lessons’ literature-based connections allow teachers to “build in” rather than “add on” social-emotional learning (SEL) throughout the day. Field-tested in classrooms across the United States, these activities when fully implemented have resulted in improved school climate, greater parent engagement, increased academic achievement, and reduction in discipline referrals.
Each book offers:
- 100+ easy-to-implement year-round activities that integrate into the daily curriculum in all subject areas
- Monthly themes focused on empathy, bullying prevention, teamwork, decision-making, and more
- Concise lesson formats (Read, Discuss, Do, Relate)
- Discussion and writing prompts
- Built-in assessment
Use the PreK–K Guide to teach young children positive life skills through daily practice. The activities teach the whole child by allowing them to be curious, active, imaginative, and part of the learning process. This guide helps teachers work within a framework toward specific goals, but also encourages them to be creative in helping children express themselves.
