Coloring Book and Reflections for Social Emotional Learning – 36 calming activities for kids

Coloring Book and Reflections for Social Emotional Learning


With a unique combination of mindful coloring illustrations and reflection prompts, Coloring Book and Reflections for Social Emotional Learning effectively combines mindfulness and SEL to be used both in the classroom and at home. Each of the SEL topics features two pages of activities and prompts, mirroring the left and right sides of our brains. The left page (logical) includes a prompt for reflection through journaling or free-drawing and the right page (creative) is an illustration for coloring to promote mindfulness. Topics range from positive self-talk to empathy to trying your best.

This mindful coloring book for kids stands on its own merits yet can be paired with other mindfulness curriculum to further integrate social and emotional learning into your everyday. The thirty-six mindfulness coloring pages correspond with the thirty-six weeks of the school year, and the SEL writing prompts support the weekly activities in Mindful Classrooms™ by James Butler.

Also available in a Spanish version.

Excellent content

Purchased a copy and received it today. Great discussion prompts and illustrations. Didn’t pay attention to the size of the pages tho before ordering. Way too small for my preschool/kindergarten children.
