Social and Emotional Learning Reading Comprehension (Big Feelings for Big Kids)
Combine social and emotional learning (SEL) with reading comprehension using these 18 passages. Each passage depicts a scene with characters experiencing complex feelings and emotions that upper elementary students may face in their own lives. The passages require students to use evidence from the text in order to analyze character feelings and body language. Then, students must reflect on how they would solve the problem. With this resource, students are reading, finding text evidence, analyzing characters and emotions, problem-solving, and empathizing. Click here to see a full preview.
