Social Emotional Learning
I am beyond excited to begin implementing our new Social Emotional Learning curriculum this fall. Second Step is recognized world-wide and a leading Social Emotional Curriculum. As soon as school begins I will begin classroom lessons and we will begin implementing the Second Step SEL program school-wide. There is a plethora of information and resources with the Second Step curriculum and much of it is available to parents via the internet. As I teach lessons in the classrooms, I will be adding what Second Step refers to at the Home Link. These are activites that you can do at home with your student to help reinforce what is being taught at school.
