Social Emotional Learning in Spanish
Research consistently demonstrates that children who are happy and who feel included in their community learn more effectively, so we introduce a foundation of social-emotional learning at an early age. Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
Each session will focus on a variety of topics: mindfulness, building relationships, coping skills, mindful body, I-statements, mindful breathing, the brain, listening, gratitude, decision making, self-talk, emotional literacy, apologizing, conflict resolution, perspective, how the brain grows, growth mindset, strengths & weaknesses, goal setting, mind-body connection, diversity, fair vs equal, bullying, thoughts-behaviors-emotions, mindful eating, empathy and compassion, mindfulness everywhere, self-compassion, mindful art, and healthy goodbyes.
Using stories, discussion, and reflection, this class will help students express their emotional selves in Spanish.
