Purpose:  Social awareness: Relationship skills: 

Materials: NA

Setting: Large spaced circle                       

Facilitator Information: This is about building connections with each other. This is about celebrating the similarities and differences between members.

Say something like:  We are going to get to know more about each other using the alphabet. We will do a couple of letters each time we meet. I’ll give an letter and you will share with the group something related to you that starts with that alphabet. A story. Example:  If “D” is the letter I could share I have a dog that I taught to sit.  At the end I’ll ask what was something new you learned about others? Similarities? Differences? Something you are interested learning more about.


Social Emotional Learning Focus: Appreciating what others can share or teach you?

Frame: When we do this, everyone think about what someone shared, that would be interesting to learn more about.

Do activity

Reflections:

What happened with others sharing?

So what are the benefits of learning more about each other’s stories?

Now where today can we ask others to share more about their stories?
