With the spread of COVID-19, social distancing, and school closures, our routines and sense of stability have been disrupted, making social emotional learning (SEL) more important than ever before. We are here to support you and your child’s social emotional learning, with a focus on instilling safety, connection, and hope.
Much of the information being shared by various education and social emotional learning organizations encourage educators and families to acknowledge that both children and adults may feel worried or stressed as they’re going through the school and work day. Providing opportunities to share and process emotions, providing consistency in daily routines, as well as creating new routines that promote healthy practices, and continuing social emotional learning practices help maintain a sense of emotional safety and support.
To help support social emotional learning at home, please see the attached SEL resource guide-a self-paced resource divided into five sections, focusing on five primary SEL skills to support your child(ren) during this time.
