Why is this SEL planner for 3 different grade levels? Won't my students get bored doing it 3 years in a row?

Third through fifth grade is a unique time in students’ development both academically and socially. This planner takes a much deeper dive into SEL skills and competency than the kindergarten through second grade planner, and students will need to repeat lessons as they grow and develop to get the most out of the lessons. 

Students at this grade level tend to think people see only their flaws, they begin selecting friends based on personality, and this is the time cliques and bullying may begin. By repeating lessons in this planner for three years, students are gradually learning and being reminded of concepts that are important yet difficult to practice. So while the planner is scaffolded, repetition is encouraged for students to fully develop and begin using these SEL skills in their lives.

Let’s look at an example from page 56 titled Knowing Where You Stand.

In third grade, students are beginning the phase in development where they feel like they are being judged by others. As they go through this planner page, they will begin to realize they can be courageous. They will be able to say how each dilemma was solved, but will most likely struggle with being able to do this if it occurs in their life.
In fourth grade, students will be more able to discuss why each dilemma was a good or poor choice and may be able to give a specific example of how they were an upstander at school. They are gaining more confidence in their ability to stand up and be courageous.
In fifth grade, students will be able to discuss each dilemma’s choice, give a specific example of how they were an upstander, and be able to apply this information to their own lives.
Notice that while the lessons are basic -- be an upstander -- the actual concept and applying this is difficult and takes practice. It is natural for students to feel uncomfortable standing up to their friends since they want to fit in and be liked by their peers. When lessons are repeated and students continue to practice this skill, they gain confidence and are able to apply it. Students are now ready to move on to the middle school Seltrove student planners!


Frequently asked questions

Why is this planner repeated for 3 different grade levels?

 Research has shown younger students benefit greatly through repetition. When we repeat content, students are able to get more and more out of the lesson each time. Even in the SEL planner, lessons are repeated in various formats so students can learn the material in new ways. This supports students' abilities to apply what they are learning to their lives.
