Teachers and administrators around the country know that now and in the year ahead, it will be crucial to integrate social and emotional learning in classrooms and school communities — regardless of whether schools re-open, remain virtual or apply a hybrid approach.
Learn how to implement SHAPE America's health. moves. minds.® service-learning program with brand new @HOME activities, lesson plans, and benefits that will help teachers and schools prioritize students’ physical, mental, and social-emotional health!
The health. moves. minds. program helps teach social-emotional skills — including kindness and empathy — while offering students an opportunity to not only raise funds for their school but to also "pay it forward" to a local charity. It can be implemented at home or at school with little or no equipment.
No matter what grade you teach, there are activities and lessons that you can implement with your students to help them live their best lives:
Standards-based lessons for grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8 — Teach students how to take care of their mind and body while developing important character traits such as kindness and empathy. The concepts covered include mindfulness, kindness, empowerment, and equity diversity & inclusion.
High-school mini-lessons — Students will learn how to select and apply strategies to deal with stress and other complex emotions and how being kinder and more inclusive can improve their overall emotional and physical health.
