Social & Emotional Learning Picture Books
The social and emotional learning picture books on this page will help you teach children about their emotions, how to manage their emotions and how to create strong, healthy relationships with other people. This is an area of particular interest for me and I’ve spent some years building my skills and knowledge about the best way to do this.
For each picture book we have included the following free, printable resources:
- a step-by-step lesson plan, including discussion questions, writing activities and suggestions for other activities related to the text;
- 1-3 differentiated wordsearch puzzles, using vocabulary from the book;
- a writing/drawing template which can be used for a variety of writing activities related to the text;
More picture books to help you develop your students’ social and emotional skills are being added regularly so check back soon to see what’s available to help in your teaching.
We feel all sorts of different emotions.
I can identify them and name them.
My heart and my feelings help me know what I need and what I can do.
Sometimes people say things which hurt our feelings. Other people can help us understand what has happened and how we can feel better.
Everyone worries. Talking about our worries can help us feel better.
Paying attention to our breathing can help us feel calm when we feel angry, worried or scared.
The words we say matter. They can help people or hurt them.
