Are you looking for a year-long curriculum for teaching your students about being kind, fair, respectful, and confident? I have created these units to support classroom instruction by explicitly teaching students about what we expect from them. In the same way that we provide direct instruction, activities, and practice in math and reading, I believe we should provide these same things for character education.
This is the first packet in a GROWING BUNDLE. Click here to learn more and purchase this pack and 9 others at a deep discount.
This packet includes many activities and lessons to teach your students self-control! To see pictures of the product, download the preview.
In this packet, you will find 4 detailed lesson plans on self-control.
1. What is self-control?
2. What are big emotions?
3. How can I calm down when I'm upset?
4. How is being patient having self-control?
This packet will help your students identify big emotions, think about the correct way to handle them, and then act appropriately! Each lesson plan has a detailed explanation of what the teacher should say and do, as well as cooresponding classroom activities. In this packet, you will find an anchor chart for steps to showing self-control (with hand motions), an emotions charades game and anchor chart, materials for a Cool Down Kit, and a lesson on patience with an anchor chart!
The Cool Down kit includes directions for setting it up, counters for cooling off for 30 seconds, Cool Down Coloring Pages, and a Cool Down journal. You'll also find management suggestions!
I truly hope this unit makes it much easier for you to build character education into your day!
