Social Emotional Learning
At Skyview, we believe in educating the whole child. This means we not only teach the academic skills our students will need in the future, but also the social and emotional skills they will need to be good friends, good employees, good neighbors, and good people who help to make our world a better place. All students will have the opportunity to learn social emotional skills through weekly Second Step lessons, which includes a Bully Proofing curriculum. The teachers at Skyview also work to incorporate the skills developed in these lessons throughout the week. We invite you to participate in the social emotional learning by checking this webpage for what we're working on, by completing the Second Step Home Links with your children, and by accessing the family resources for your child's grade level(s).
There are many other resources available to students and families that will be posted here to support the social-emotional wellness of your family. Please check back frequently resources will be updated regularly.
Virtual SEL Classroom:
Students can access my virtual SEL Classroom 24/7 by clicking the link next to the picture. In the room, they will find many resources they can access at home or at school to support their social-emotional needs. There are a variety of coping strategies (like deep breathing exercise, calming jars, and calming music), yoga and mindful movement videos, gratitude prompts, read-alouds, and activities to support their social-emotional learning. There is also an incredible SEL Hub linked to the Hall Pass in the room that you can use as a family as well that is full of books, videos, calming activities, movement breaks, and short SEL lessons.
