Personal, Social & Emotional Development (PSED) Activities
Welcome to Hands-On Education! We're here to provide primary school teachers and home educators with quick and informative solutions to the various problems they face. Personal, Social & Emotional Development (PSED) is one of the key components listed in the early learning goals. It is an essential part of a child's early years' education as it helps them develop their emotional intelligence, learn to communicate and build relationships with others. At Hands-On Education, we understand the importance of PSED, and we are committed to providing teachers and home educators with the necessary resources to enhance their students' learning experience.
We have three free topics within this component, each one containing multiple activity suggestions that will help children develop their PSED skills. These activities are designed to be engaging and fun, allowing children to learn through play and exploration. Whether you are a teacher or a parent, you can access all these great ideas completely free anytime by logging in or creating a free account on our website.
At Hands-On Education, we believe that every child deserves the best possible start in life, and we are dedicated to providing the resources and support needed to achieve this. Our approach to teaching and general information is light and engaging, making learning a fun and enjoyable experience for both children and adults. So why not sign up today and start exploring the world of PSED with us?
Our PSED Activities
Our personal, social and emotional development topic is a great resource for parents and teachers looking to help children develop in these areas. In this topic, we've included a range of activities that your child can enjoy, including everyday tasks, worry dolls and teamwork.
- Everyday tasks are a great way to help children develop their personal skills. Simple tasks like tidying up their room, setting the table for dinner or even helping with grocery shopping can help children develop a sense of responsibility and independence. By completing these tasks, children feel a sense of accomplishment and pride, which can help boost their self-esteem.
- Worry dolls are another great activity to help children with their emotional development. These small dolls are traditionally used in Guatemala to help children deal with their worries. Children can tell their worries to the doll before they go to sleep, allowing them to let go of their anxieties and sleep better. Making worry dolls can also be a fun and creative activity for children and can help improve their fine motor skills.
- Our teamwork activities are a great way to help children develop their social skills. Activities like building a tower out of blocks or playing a game of Simon Says require children to work together, communicate effectively and develop their problem-solving skills. By working together, children learn to value the contributions of others and develop a sense of empathy and compassion.
We hope that these activities will be helpful for you and your child to enjoy together. Don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or if you're looking for more ideas on how to help your child develop their personal, social and emotional skills.
