Social Emotional Learning Resources
Research indicates that children who have well developed social and emotional skills tend to be happier, show greater motivation to learn, have a more positive attitude toward school, more eagerly participate in class activities, and demonstrate higher academic performance than those who do not (Hyson 2004; Kostelnik et al. 2015). Many of the planned and unplanned events that happen in our preschool classrooms support the critical importance of social and emotional development. Below you will find a few read-alouds and activities that you can access at home to support social and emotional skill building.
