The Introductory Video from the I am a Tree Module is designed for young children (3-8yrs). It is a great addition to morning meeting, circle time, work stations, and/or can be used in 1 to 1 instructional settings to address multiple Social Emotional Learning standards. The video also serves as a springboard for literacy center activities and can be used to address multiple Common Core Standards.
Engaging visuals and a catchy song guide children through a movement-based, focused listening practice that exercises attention control (e.g. focus and concentration), self-regulation (e.g. impulse control) and other social emotional skills that are essential to success in the classroom and beyond. I am a Tree also serves as a powerful behavioral management strategy, providing children with a structured approach to calming and relaxation.
The introductory video offered here is also a part of the complete I am a Tree Bundle (coming soon), which includes a several months worth of circle time and literacy center learning including:
Instruction Book (teaching manual w/ goals, teaching strategies, tips, etc.)
Lyrics and Picture Book (picture and storybook)
Workbook (activities for circle time and literacy center)
Generalization Strategies (additional activities)
