Motivation Station-1After the last two years being anything but normal, you might be on a constant quest for ideas and ways to support the social-emotional wellbeing of your students and boost their self-esteem. Social-emotional learning (SEL) has become a critical focus in helping our students grow not only personally, but academically as well.

In partnership with Cathy Henry, an educator and founder of The Curriculum Corner and Free Word Work, we've created this Motivation Station Social-Emotional Lesson Plan activity to help spread a little positivity! And it's not only approaching the topic from a self-love standpoint, but encourages peer-to-peer support as well!

In this activity, students will practice using words and phrases of affirmation through a "Motivation Station" you can set up in your classroom, or as an extension, you could also utilize the printables as a take-home project for students to complete with their families.

Through reading books, personal reflections, and group discussions, aided by a number of free printables, students will build self-confidence and self-esteem as they explore their positive impact on others and affirmations that who they are is enough in our great big world.
