Social Skill Curriculum For Late Elementary School
Fostering Self-Regulation & Social Awareness for Positive Relationships
Students in late elementary grades are hitting their social stride and how they develop those skills can influence their academic success. They are still naturally inclined to play, but they’re also beginning to think about how other people perceive them. As students develop more meaningful relationships, they are curious to know what others think. Our social emotional skill development for late elementary school program helps students explore their place in the world with interactive videos made just for them.
SEL Tools for Growing Social Awareness
Students in older elementary grades are growing in independence, which means they don’t always want help solving problems. When frustrated, these students still often struggle to control their emotions or find the words that convey their feelings. Socially, students in these grades may begin testing power dynamics that lead to exclusion behaviors.
Teachers see the social dynamics among students and their struggle for independence. They recognize that their students still need play and movement, but they see them beginning to avoid those activities. Administrators are unsure if teachers have the support needed to provide social guidance while meeting academic standards. Meanwhile, families are learning how to create a connection between school and home while managing children who are increasingly exploring the limits of their selfhood.
Now imagine a context where students (at home or at school) have the awareness and management skills to recognize frustration, pause, and ask for help. Students practice empathy and pay attention to how their words affect their peers. When you integrate Move This World’s SEL program for later elementary grades into your curriculum, these are exactly the changes you’ll see.
