Social Emotional Learning lessons

Our focus for the month of September is empathy. I have really enjoyed doing lessons with the student over this topic, and I know they have learned a lot. I am excited to see them utilize these skills in their classroom.

Here's some tips on helping your children practice empathy:

*Empathize with your child and model empathy for others.

*Make caring for others a priority.

*Provide opportunities for kids to practice empathy.

*Expand your child's circle of concern.

*Help children develop self control and to manage feelings effectively.

Our focus for the month of October will be self direction.
