This is a set of 25 cards, size 4x6, each with a mantra on it. (Eg. I will try, I can do hard things, I can handle it, etc.) On the back of each card are some talking points to facilitate discussion.
These are based on the 5 Social Emotional competencies; Self Awareness, Self Management, Social Awareness, Relationship skills and Responsible Decision Making. There are 5 cards for each of the competencies, and they are colour coded.
You can use them in many ways! For example, you can focus on one card a day, discuss and refer back to the mantra many times throughout the day. You can use one a week or one a month. You can choose which card you'll focus on, or the students can pick one out. You also might pick out a certain card to correlate to other lessons you are doing, a story you are reading or a social situation unfolding in the class. These could also be used as Literacy Centres, as a story starter or a journal topic.
Social situations forever come up throughout the school day, and these will help to start the important discussions that need to happen.
The previews show all 5 of each competency, however the file includes 50 files, front and back of each card.
