Teach your students how to give and help using these fun and developmentally appropriate activities. Guide your students to develop the life skills of helping and giving and build empathy for others. This unit is perfect to do anytime during the year or during the holiday (Christmas).
Teaching social skills and how to interact with others (aka character education) is a life skill and takes direct teaching for little learners. It takes lots of practice and visual supports. These activities will help you build a caring community of learners who will support each other all year long. These activities are designed for preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, or first grade.
This is included in my Character Education Bundle for Preschool, Pre-K, and Kindergarten
