It's more important than ever for students to understand how to manage emotions, show empathy for others, and make responsible decisions. When I was in the classroom, I used the two sites below to help my students with their Social Emotional Learning.

I love GoNoodle because it empowers students to be the best versions of themselves by practicing social emotional skills! Get in touch with your emotions with Mood Walk!

If you haven't checked out the Big Ideas series yet from ClassDojo, do yourself a favor and go now! These are excellent videos & activities to use with your class to develop Social Emotional Learning skills, also known as "Soft Skills." My class would watch a new video each Monday morning to set our week off on the right foot! Your class is guaranteed to love them, too!

PS - Don't tell anyone, but I hear a new video is coming soon ;-)
