Social Emotional Learning Read Alouds

Lesson Plans by Lauren Ayube

Read alouds are an excellent way to begin a lesson or to initiate conversations with students about topics that may be tricky to talk about as a group. Oftentimes, social emotional issues can be uncomfortable for students to discuss, as they may feel like they are the only ones dealing with certain things, or that others will judge them for expressing their feelings. Read alouds help show students that these issues and feelings are so common that someone actually wrote a book about them. They don't have to be afraid to share how they feel!


Social Emotional Learning Read Alouds
