Why Teach SEL Skills?
Social emotional skills like self-awareness help kids to identify their emotions, recognize their strengths, set goals, and build a growth mindset. Additionally, self-management skills will help your students be ready to focus and learn in class. By teaching them coping skills like breathing, mindfulness, and grounding exercises, they will learn to regulate emotions and build executive functioning skills like self-control.
Moreover, when you integrate social emotional learning into your classroom, you are also teaching students social awareness and healthy relationship skills. For example, students will learn how to develop empathy and respect for others, resolve conflicts peacefully, treat each other with kindness, and build healthy friendships.
Lastly, when you teach kids SEL skills, they learn responsible decision making. For instance, prompts review how to deal with peer pressure, solve problems, and practice healthy, self-care habits.
