Social-emotional learning (SEL) games are a wonderful way to teach students psycho-educational skills in a no-pressure environment. This motivational game package allows students to learn and apply both social-emotional skills and academic strategies. These games can be developed and used as the main part of any lesson or group session; alternately, they can be simplified for use in warm-ups and intro/closing activities. You can even use these games in individual counseling sessions if you don’t mind playing along with your student/client! Additionally, these games show kids that both social-emotional learning and counseling are positive experiences- your students will have so much fun playing these games that they will look forward to and even seek out future SEL/counseling opportunities!
Each game comes with: game preparation steps, detailed directions on how to play the game, a mini-lesson on the game topic (topics are listed below), and discussion questions for use in processing the game experience. This resource is appropriate for students in grades 3-12 and is aligned with the American School Counselor Association standards.
