Our “Self-Kindness Gift Cards” activity in EMPOWER Your Students would be a great way to encourage students to be kind to themselves. Here’s an adapted version that brings some #SEL to #remotelearning
First, ask students to write about or draw the difference between self-indulgence and self-kindness. Give examples if you think that will prompt but not limit their thinking.
If they can share out, have them share their own examples of self-indulgence and self-kindness.
Next, have students download copies of the graphic organizer below, or just show it to them and have them draw their own.
Explain that these are all forms of self-kindness, but that they’re categories. That is, there are LOTS of ways people can exercise, lots of things people can create, lots of ways to connect with loved ones, and so on.
Ask students to list things they can do in each category while doing social distancing. They might need help brainstorming in certain categories. If possible, have them work on their lists, then share, then make their lists for a bit longer. But…
..if you’re doing asynchronous learning, or if they’re struggling to come up with lists of their own, you can share things from your own lists. (Did I forget to mention that this activity works best if you do it along with the students?)
Finally, give them a calendar like the one below. Have them add dates so the calendar starts the day you do this activity and runs for either two weeks or until school resumes, whichever time period is shorter.
Ask students to choose one thing off any list for each day. For example, if my “playing” list includes Scattergories, I might write Scattergories for my day 1. If my “exercising” list includes hiking, I might write hiking for my day 2.
Point out that they might do the same form of self-kindness every day, or alternate between a few, or choose something different for every day. Again, it will help your students if you do this activity too and show them your calendar.
After a few days, ask your students how their self-kindness calendars are going. If they did any of their self-kindness actions, how did that feel? If not, what got in the way? Do they need to set alerts? Choose other actions? Work with a partner?
Keep checking it every few days. If your school is canceled for longer than a period of two weeks, have your students make new calendars. Remind them that they can add new actions to their brainstorm lists at any point.
No, this activity won’t stop the spread of #coronavirus. It won’t prevent #anxiety. But it might give students meaningful ways to take care of themselves as we all ride this out together.
