Woodland Families:

The Woodland staff misses you so much. Since we have been virtual for the past three months, we thought we'd make BitMoji from each staff member. We are waving to you!

Next Week's Google Classroom...

Today was the last day teachers posted on their Google Classroom. You will find review activities for next week. Remember, those of you returning devices should look this weekend. The district will be posting review materials and resources for every elementary grade level starting on 6/15/2020. There will be a ton of free resources and activities to prevent the summer slide.

SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING SUMMER ACTIVITIES

Now more that ever, we must prioritize the social and emotional growth of our children. Social Emotional Learning (SEL) includes skills for correctly labeling emotions, recognizing the impact of thoughts and feelings, and understanding how emotions can affect behavior as well as physical health. The focus also includes teaching students how to have concern for others, make responsible decisions, develop healthy relationships, and effectively manage challenging situations. It will be important to teach our children how to set and work towards achieving positive goals, manage time and stress, and show empathy for others. With all of the above in mind, the Methacton elementary school counselors created a fun and colorful SEL packet to help your child practice these skills while home for the summer. Attached you will find an electronic copy. If you would like a hard copy of this packet, please notify Dr. Euker at mailto:deuker@methacton.org and we will arrange to get you one.
