POCET Social and Emotional Example

POCET provides four basic activities for each of the 68 Developmental Guidelines which provide a scope and sequence of skills for Language, Literacy and Mathematics, plus five other domains of learning.

Here is an example for the Social and Emotional domain:
Working Self-Portraits
Have each child in the classroom draw or paint a self-portrait which shows them participating in their favorite school activity. Place the portraits in the appropriate area of the classroom and point out the these children are good at and enjoy that particular activity. Mention that other children can ask for help or suggestions from these "helpers." Example: Erin painted a picture of herself using the building blocks. Her picture is displayed in the block center. She is now a "Block Center Helper." Other children can check with her for directions or suggestions.
