Summary of This article was about a school where social and emotional
essential learning (SEL) was integrated throughout every aspect of the
information: school day. Students were greeted each day by their teacher,
there was a corner of the room where students could go to calm
down before they did something that would get them in trouble
and there was even a problem solving diary where students
could write down their emotions and thoughts before meeting
with the principal. The school believed that social and
emotional skills could be taught through SEL programs but
rather should permeate through every aspect of the school day-
curriculum, instruction, policy and all who work there. It also
disused the benefits of a classroom supportive of social and
emotional learning and how students thrive and take risks.
Potential -Supports my desire to have a classroom environment that is welcoming,
relevance to your
warm, and safe. As we move to full day kindergarten I hope to integrate
research topic
social and emotional learning into all aspects of the day. Not just a few
and study:
lessons as needed.

using technology to extend the community of SEL support
beyond the classroom.
