Social Emotional Learning 5 Minute Challenges
The social-emotional component is more critical than ever. Therefore, everyone can use strategies, tactics, and activities that address social skills. Some are communication, cooperation, emotion regulation, empathy, and impulse control. Everyone is cooped up at home for an extended and unknown length of time. Therefore, it’s a great time to explore social-emotional well-being.
