Growth mindset is not just about academic learning! This social-emotional growth mindset packet explores the role of the Amygdala in being the emotional center of the brain and teaches students how they can strengthen their Amygdalas through various social and emotional activities! It's great for social skills groups, guidance counselor lessons, therapy sessions or to accompany a unit on the brain! It is also a great companion piece to the book, "The Fantastic Elastic Brain."
Here's what you will receive:
1-page teaching ideas and resources including links to research on the amygdala.
A 12-page teaching story entitled "Strengthen Your Amygdala," an engaging look at the role of the Amygdala in the brain. The story connects this part of the brain to social and emotional skills and gives ideas for how students can improve their social skills. This story is provided in both color and black and white.
A classroom poster "Talk to new people: strengthen your Amygdala." Color.
An activity to help students plan social and emotional tasks they can do to practice new social-emotional skills and train their brains. 4 pages. Includes 2 tiers of a planning worksheet. This can also be used as a bulletin board or wall display of your student's work!
2 tiers of a worksheet: "My social skills model," where students draw or describe someone they know that has good social skills. Hmmm, what can they learn from this person?
2 tiers of comprehension question worksheets about the story: thumbs up/down or true/false and sentence completion.
