20 YouTube Videos for Social Emotional Learning in Grades Tk-2nd

Videos Monthly List

Are you a teacher or counselor providing general Social-Emotional Learning, or SEL, to your whole classroom? If so, videos are a fun, quick, and relatively easy way to provide SEL on a frequent basis! But, researching the perfect videos that are age appropriate and actually good takes time. If you are looking for an easy way to provide videos on a weekly or monthly basis, please check out my Videos list (seen above) for a school year’s worth of videos, organized by monthly topic. There are 7-8 Videos per month.

Here are the topics themes organized by month:

  • August & September: School Based Skills-Listening, Following Directions, behavior at school
  • October: Learning about emotions
  • November: Social skills: Playing with others and personal space
  • December: Social Skills: Empathy, friendship & manners
  • January: Growth mindset and positive thinking
  • February: coping skills and Zones of Regulation
  • March: Mindfulness
  • April: Controlling Anger and Emotional Regulation
  • May: Self-control
