    You may hear the term "Social and Emotional learning" used a lot, but what is it? It's many things! 

    Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to:

    • recognize and manage their emotions;
    • demonstrate caring and concern for others;
    • establish positive relationships
    • make responsible decisions
    • handle challenging situations constructively.

    Each of these compenents are made up of many different skills and and knowledge.             Here are just a few! 

    Feelings and Emotions    Social Skills/Friendships    Problem Solving     Growth Mindset    Mindfulness         Focus & Attention        Self-advocacy         Self-esteem      Self-control       Anxiety/Worry      Bullying

    SEL lessons are also dependent on the age and developmental level of a child. But no matter their age or grade, these are important lessons. On this page and the tabs below, I will be posting remote learning SEL lessons, ideas, and activities. If there are additional topics you would like some ideas for, please contact me at kbryk@antioch34.com and let me know what you are looking for help with.
