Celebrating Achievements with High Fives Activity for Social Emotional Learning
Celebrate accomplishments with your students with this activity pack! These activities might be used over the course of a week, month, or entire school year to go back and revisit.
Start your activities by displaying the rainbow high five (page 5 (color), 6 (black and white)). Discuss accomplishments (ex. writing names, swinging by ourselves, counting to 10, etc.). Talk about the feeling of pride in ourselves. Then ask students to share about a time when they felt proud. With each share, have students give a five to the rainbow high five!
Encourage active listening by asking students to recall what another student shared, and then invite the students to share high fives for their accomplishments!
Follow up with these discussions by having students share their thoughts on paper. Two drawing options (pages 7, 8) are included. Three writing options (pages 9-11) are included as well, along with a coloring page (page 12) to place on top of the writing sheets for display.
To continue your activities, you might hang posters (pages 13, 14) up in or on lockers. At sharing time, students share about their own accomplishments and accomplishments of friends. Then they color an element of the poster, such as a a bow, an eye, and so on, to represent their accomplishments! You might choose to work on their own accomplishment poster first, followed by giving compliments and celebrating friends with the next poster.
Hang up the high five poster (page 4) in your room as a reminder to celebrate everyone’s accomplishments.
The Magical Yet, The Circles All Around Us, and Your Future Is Bright, are great books to read to add to your lessons!
