It’s time to celebrate! Pre-kindergartners are learning to tell themselves the truth. In this SEL lesson, the class displays the "Sing Your Truth" poster and celebrates their learning of the social-emotional skill of self-honesty.
The students’ beloved puppet companions, Squeak and Mimi, join them as they look back and test their understanding of the unit concepts. They then do the clap that they have learned from Mr. Jazzman. This is followed by a class discussion where the teacher explains again why self-honesty is important and how to always be self-honest.
"By being truthful with themselves, pre-kindergartners can accept and become aware of their strengths and weaknesses, fostering self-awareness and personal growth."
Then, the students participate in an activity that encourages them to always tell themselves the truth. After this, a Positive Action song titled "Self-Honesty" is played. It is a great tool for helping the students remember everything about telling themselves the truth. The celebration and Unit 5 are then closed with the teacher reading the students’ ICU messages from the ICU box.
There are many benefits to teaching pre-kindergartners about self-honesty. By being truthful with themselves, pre-kindergartners can accept and become aware of their strengths and weaknesses, fostering self-awareness and personal growth. Understanding the areas in which they excel can also help them forge their path to success, positive development, and intellectual improvement. Finally, by staying true to their words and being honest with others, they can build healthy and long-lasting, dependable relationships.
This lesson is designed to help pre-kindergartners retain the unit concepts. Using positive reinforcements, it provides students with an effective and fun learning experience that ensures their success in social-emotional development.
