Day 4: Looking for an activity for morning meetings or to go along with your SEL curriculum? The Gratitude Game from @teachbesideme is a great small or large group conversation starter.
Grab some pipe cleaners, straws, pieces of paper, etc. in 5 colors (make sure there a few of each color). Each color represents a type of thing you are grateful for. These are the categories TBS created, but you can make your own.
To Play: First, each student picks an item. Then, have them sit quietly and take three deep breaths BEFORE showing them the categories. Give the children a few moments to think on their own why they are grateful. Finally, they can share with a partner, small group, or the whole class what they are thankful for.
If your school allows you could even play this game with skittles or gummy bears!
