Have You Filled Your Cup Today? Mindful/ Content Social Emotional Learning
Use the concept of filling up a cup to help students connect to their emotions and feelings and to provide students with check ins on themselves 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.
Contents and Directions:
Pages 1-3: Product Details
Start your activities by displaying a cocoa mug (page 5 (color), 6 (black and white)). Explain that the mug is filled up with happy things (ex. coloring, eating an ice cream cone, riding a bike, a hug from a friend, dancing, etc.) as you touch each marshmallow, whip cream, straw, cocoa. Explain that our hearts are like a cup, and we can fill it with activities, people, and things we enjoy. Then ask students to share what they like to do to make their hearts happy.
Next, explain that you can make others’ hearts happy, too with things like visiting a loved one, drawing a picture for a teacher, telling someone you love them, etc. Ask students to share a time when they made someone else happy.
Follow up with these discussions by having students share their thoughts on paper. Two drawing options (pages 7, 8) are included. Two writing options (pages 9-11) are included as well, along with a craft (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 how they filled their cup or others’ cups; once they share, they color another element of the poster (handle, eye, cheek, and so on….)
Hang up the mug poster (page 4) in your room as a reminder to reflect on checking in ourselves and others.
