Happy New Year!
Here is what's coming up for social-emotional programming in January:
Monday Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)
All grades will have weekly SEL time with me, via live virtual lessons every Monday and some in-person lessons for the younger grades. We will cover the CASEL domains, starting with being inclusive of others.
NTSS (Norwell Tiered Systems of Support) Groups
Teachers have been asked to tier their students in terms of social-emotional concerns like anxiety, self-regulation, making friends, sadness, etc. We also offered a student screener, called the mySAEBRS, in grades 2-5, to get students' perspectives on their social, academic, and emotional functioning. Now that the data from both teacher and student screeners has been compiled, Dr. Ciolkosz (school psychologist) and I have started small groups and lunch bunches to build skills with students in needed areas. Please let me know if you have any questions!
