Social and Emotional Learning-Summer Edition

Social and Emotional Learning is a skill and practice that can continue to grow and develop outside of school. This is a particularly difficult time for families right now due to COVID-19, and it's important to remember to find ways to connect and have fun as a family. Activities that connect you to your kids can continue to grow their social and emotional language and practices.

Here are a few ideas to get the ball rolling this summer:

  • Start a DIY (do it yourself) project as a family that gives your kids responsibility and room to be creative.
  • Teach your kids to cook. Maybe you build up to a big family meal by the end of the summer.
  • Walk or exercise as a family.
  • Build a fort with pillows, blankets, chairs giving your kids space to explore and be creative.
  • Play a board game as a family
  • Read a book or book series as a family
  • Have a dance party where everyone can let loose and be silly! It's important for kids to see you let loose and be silly once in a while.

Stay tuned for weekly updates and helpful strategies from our school counselor, Ms. Meg, throughout the summer!


El Aprendizaje Social y Emocional es una habilidad y práctica que puede seguir creciendo y desarrollándose fuera de la escuela. Este es un momento particularmente difícil para las familias en este momento debido a COVID-19, y es importante recordar encontrar formas de conectarse y divertirse en familia. Las actividades que lo conectan con sus hijos pueden continuar haciendo crecer su lenguaje y prácticas sociales y emocionales.

Aquí hay algunas ideas para poner en marcha este verano:

  • Comience un proyecto de bricolaje (hágalo usted mismo) como una familia que les da a sus hijos responsabilidad y espacio para ser creativos.
  • Enseñe a sus hijos a cocinar. Tal vez te preparas para una gran comida familiar para el final del verano.
  • Camine o haga ejercicio en familia.
  • Construya un fuerte con almohadas, mantas, sillas que brinden a sus hijos espacio para explorar y ser creativos.
  • Juega un juego de mesa en familia
  • Leer un libro o una serie de libros en familia
  • ¡Ten una fiesta de baile donde todos puedan soltarse y ser tontos! Es importante que los niños te vean soltarse y ser tontos de vez en cuando.

¡Estén atentos para actualizaciones semanales y estrategias útiles de nuestra consejera escolar, la Sra. Meg, durante todo el verano!
