The Principal's POV on...our Weekly SEL Stories!

I had such a blast visiting classrooms on Monday to checkout our Weekly #EverydaySEL stories. To say that that everyone's take on this initiative blew me away would be an understatement! It was a wonderful experience for me to see students engaging in purposeful talk through the lens of social-emotional learning. It was equally wonderful to see how everyone has tied this activity into our literacy practices! From close reading and reading response, to beginning-middle-end and story elements...and students were highly engaged! As you collaborate, don't forget to share some of YOUR ideas with your team...and see below for some pics!


A case of the Mondays?!? Not here...because of your SEL work, our kiddos can't wait for Mondays!
