Morning SEL Update: June 1

Good Morning Families,

In support of our student’s being able to build SEL skills during this particularly difficult time in our country, we are going to be spending this week focusing our SEL lens on bullying. We will be using school language and SEL skills to look at bullying behavior, and pro-social ways to respond to bullying. We will also be using current and recent events in our nation as our context and we will be talking about behavior choices we have seen from Gregory and Travis McMichael, Derrick Chauvin, Amy Cooper, and President Donald Trump. Please join us for this very important learning.

Morning SEL Update: May 28

Good Morning Families,

Today we are talking about ANTs. That’s ANTs as in Automatic Negative Thoughts. And if you’re listening in Spanish, then we are talking about PAN as in Pensamiento Automatico Negativo. And if that’s not some super flexible interpreting and translating then what the heck is? ANTs and PAN. Join us!

Morning SEL Update: May 22

Good Morning Families,

Still we travel through the heart of learning and teaching! Today we focus on the brain and what’s going on in there. All, of it. We cover it all today! Just kidding. We just barely get in there with the amygdala. But, onward we march! Also, remember, Monday is Memorial Day so we’ll connect, in whatever way we can, on Tuesday.

Morning SEL Update: May 21

Good Morning Families,

In the heart of learning and teaching we face struggle, we face setback, we experience stress. When that stress is severe or lasts for a long time, we may experience trauma. Today we begin to learn about how a school community can work in ways so that all students to thrive. (There is a supplemental Mr. Manzo Reads that may support the language around defining trauma. The book is After the Fall. It’s been sent before to help prepare for this learning. Just in case you want to review.)
