Social and Emotional Learning
Summer is a great time to help children develop their social and emotional learning skills. This includes simple things such as learning to share, being kind, taking turns, and practicing self control in the classroom.
What are social and emotional learning skills?
Falling under categories like relationship building, self-management, self-awareness, social awareness, and responsible decision making, these skills are essential for student success. These skills develop over time and take effort to learn and put into practice on a daily basis during interactions with classmates and teachers.
