Teach Cooperation Every Day – Social-Emotional Learning

Is your classroom too hectic? Are your students arguing over supplies, interrupting you and each other, and being slightly uncooperative? If so, it may be time for a Social Emotional learning lesson about cooperation. That’s where we come in!

Help your students understand what cooperation is and isn’t, and help them make a plan to cooperate in the classroom with a printable accordion book activity. Your students will love drawing and writing about ways they can show cooperation on a foldable strip, which is then combined to create a fun shutter-style accordion book.
