* 180 Ready to Print Social Emotional and Empathy Skill Task Cards *
I designed these task cards for use in my 1st grade classroom during morning meeting time. Year after year I found myself thinking "What were you thinking?!" when I see how my students interact with each other, and how they react to a situation they've never been in before.
Just like any other academic subject, we must teach these skills explicitly to help our students become amazing young people.
Each one of these social situations or empathy task cards is based on a situation that one of my kindergarteners, 1st graders or 2nd graders has personally experienced during my time as an educator. You know how we explicitly teach routines and rituals at the beginning of the year, so we can set our classroom up for success? That's the same goal I had in mind when I designed these cards. Each task card comes with a situation or question posed, and it asks students to model the right way and the wrong way. These cards will absolutely help create a culture of acceptance, respect and empathy in your classroom.
