Social Emotional

We know that each and every student needs to be ready and available to learn.  Every classroom invests in ensuring that students have the social emotional skills they need to be a good friend, listen to others, show empathy, be respectful, practice responsibility, and more.  

Second Step is a research based curriculum that allows classrooms opportunities to explicitly teach social-emotional learning.  Topics in each grade level include Skills for Learning, Empathy, Emotion Management, and Problem Solving.  Lessons include role playing skits, videos, and catchy chants to remember in a pinch. 

 

               

 

We also highlight a Life Skill of the month. These are skills that we all need to be productive members of society, such as respect, perseverance, self-control, and integrity.  A school wide assembly recognizes students in each class who have exemplified that certain skill.  We love seeing our Tigers shine and acknowledging what special people they are!
