Second Grade Social emotional Activities: The Way I Act

What You Need:

 

What You Do:

  1. Ask your child about a time they made a healthy choice in behaviour. How did it feel? How did it impact others?
  2. Explain that both of you will be drawing or writing about a time when you showed responsibility, kindness, and care.
  3. Ask your child, "How does it feel when you do the right thing or make a healthy choice?"
  4. Ask your child to think of as many words as they can that are connected to positive behaviors (e.g. responsible, caring, curious, compassionate).
  5. Use the Planning the Way I Act worksheet as a guide to support your conversation with your child.
  6. After completing the worksheet, ask your child the following reflection questions: How do you feel when you make a healthy choice? Are you proud? Happy? Where do you notice this feeling in your body? Why is important to make healthy choices? How can this help us? How do you think others feel when we make healthy choices in behaviour?
  7. Ask your child where they would like to place their handout in the home, so that it can serve as a reminder of making healthy choices in behaviour.
