WHAT? Below are original Anchor charts that I drew, following my Pinterest and fellow teachers influence!
WHY? Children need to be taught Social Skills and Social Emotional Skills.
HOW? There are 2 ways to use these.
Option 1: Read over the first page yourself and familiarize yourself with the topic. Introduce your topic with a quick video or movie clip or even a personal story. Next, write the topic at the top of your “chart.” Typically, this would be on chart paper, a poster board, etc. Then, have your students share their ideas on the topic. Ask: “What is _____?” “How have you done this or seen others do this?” As students respond and share…..write down their thoughts and ideas. The 1st page that I’ve uploaded is a guide/example for you to use. Your anchor chart will look similar to mine. Finally, provide students with the second page (the one with blanks and open spaces). Students will respond in their own words on this page and they can place this in a folder, notebook or take it home!
Option 2: Use these for remote teaching!!!! Use an application such as Seesaw or Google Classroom to “post” the anchor chart. Include either a video or personal story to introduce the topic. Then, “post” the response page for students to complete and then turn in to you! It’s that simple! You can do this!!!!!
Think about goals you can make for you….You will record your thinking on the attached template by using any of the SeeSaw tools.
- What is one thing you can do better at?
- What can you focus on more?
- What is something that you need reminders for?
- What is something you need help with?
- Read the kind things on the heart sheet.
- Think of 4 ways you can be kind.
- Write them on the blank kindness sheet.
1. Think about….What is self esteem? 2. On the blank sheet, list some things you have learned about self-esteem.
MY EMOTIONAL NEEDS
- Think about your needs when you feel angry or sad….
- Respond by writing 3 things you NEED when you feel good and 3 things you NEED when you feel frustrated. They might be the same.
- If you can’t think of 3 for each, go back and look at the first sheet, for ideas.
- Read back what you have decided are YOUR needs….to be your best self.
- Be aware of what you need and be sure to let others know.
- Be sure to check out all the single “emotion sheets” as well!
*Bonus activity: Tell an adult what your needs are, when you are frustrated.
1. Read the first page about how to take another’s perspective. 2. List what you have learned, on the blank sheet.
COPING – CALMING DOWN
1. Introduce the topic by discussing what coping is. For example: “We all get upset and have other feelings too. We show our feelings in different ways. When we learn these ways to cope, we can know what to do when we have certain feelings.” 2. After learning ways to cope, complete your own bubble sheet about ways you plan to cope in the future.
- Listen to the video about your b-r-a-i-n.

ZONES OF REGULATION
This is an extensive curriculum that teaches children to identify what zone they are in, based on their emotion and feeling at the moment. It is amazing and my entire school has used it. You can visit their website for all the information.
