SEL Social Skills Build Communication

While children in this age group love to laugh, sing, and move, they also have very big feelings and emotions. They are still developing an awareness of how they relate to their peers, and they are learning to regulate their bodies. Their brains are doing hard work, and they don’t always know how to ask for a break or for help.

Teachers are under pressure to give individual attention to students without falling behind in a given day’s lesson plan. Administrators are aware that each classroom has complex dynamics, and it’s difficult to know if teachers have the tools they need to fully serve the students. Family members need the support and tools to help them bridge the gap for their children, whether learning is happening remotely or in the classroom. 

Now imagine a radically different learning environment. Students have words for their emotions. When those emotions run high, you know how to help your students breathe their way to calm. Everyone starts the day with exercises that encourage focus and listening skills. Students pay attention to peers and family members and apply social skills that help them support each other. This is all possible, and this is how we Move This World.
