One Word Reflection Activity

Who: All Ages

One WordWhy: The practice of communicating feelings, gratitude and inspiration together in a group is a powerful empathy builder and expression of self-awareness, which can lead to a more regulated self and increased positive relationships.

This activity can be used as a check in or check out that includes awareness of the personal state of being (self awareness) and as part of the group (social awareness), both important parts of social emotional learning.

Tip: As the adult in the house or room, keep a list of words the students in your house say. Display them somewhere so all feelings are accepted and all inspiration shared.
