Social Emotional Learning
December's Self Care Tip: Gratitude
What are students learning?
After an extended break, there is always time dedicated for teachers to reconnect with their students and reteach or review school-wide expectations. Once those expectations have been reviewed, students and teachers will pick back up with the same SEL units they began during November. Elementary students will continue learning about empathy, while Intermediate students will continue learning about ways to identify and cope with difficult emotions. Middle school students will continue to learn about Recognizing Bullying and Harassment while High School students will continue to learn about values and reflect on what their own values are.
Families looking to engage their students around these topics can ask questions like:
- What are you learning during SEL time this week?
- What is one way you can demonstrate empathy to someone having a rough day?
- What are some things you value? How do your values inform your decision making?
