A Message to Parents and Caregivers:
What is SEL?
This is the 2nd year that Mt. Energy has incorporated SEL in our morning meetings, using the Positivity Project, and in our character education program.
Using Literature to Develop SEL Skills
A great way to help younger children manage their emotions is to help them identify and talk about how they are feeling. Here is an activity you can do with your child.
After listening to the book, In My Heart: A Book About Feelings, talk with your child about different feelings. Here are some discussion questions:
- How are you feeling right now?
- What makes you feel sad/mad/happy/shy/scared/proud?
- When you feel sad/mad/scared/shy, what can you do to help your body feel better?
Character Education Corner
This month, our character trait is Respect.
Concerns or Questions?
Our school participates in the Backpack Buddies Program to provide meals for students over the weekend. Please contact Mrs. Tartamella if you would like to receive these meals.
