Social Emotional Ideas for Summer
Posted on 03/27/2020

Working on social skills isn’t just an activity to take place in the classroom. Over the summer take advantage of opportunities for practicing and strengthening your child’s skills everywhere – even outside.

Some important points to help as you work on these social skills through outdoor activities:

 

  • Be intentional with the skills you are working on. Talk about the social skills and why they matter.
  • Give plenty of practice. So often, one experience isn’t enough to really target a skill. Give it time!
  • Allow choice. Give kids an option of two different activities. This will help them buy-in and feel empowered before they even start.

 

Here are some activities to build social skills outside the four walls of the classroom. (Attached you’ll find some activities)
