Social-Emotional Learning at Home

53 0

Learning at home during the current health crisis can be difficult for students of all ages. Students in Grade 1/2 spent time talking about big emotions – we call those The Beast. We watched a video by Class Dojo, and then talked about how sometimes we feel some pretty big feelings like anxiety, stress, anger and fear. Then, we drew pictures of what we thought our Beast might look like. Finally, we brainstormed some ideas of how to tame The Beast. Here are some of our suggestions: giving the beast a treat, getting fresh air, taking deep breaths, walking away from a situation, and telling the beast that they won’t let their emotions get the best of them! Here’s the video if you’d like to take a look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6CPzyqCff0​

About The Author

My name is Shannon Neill and I am currently the Grade 1/2 teacher at AcadeCap. I began my teaching career in 2017 after graduating from McGill University with a Bachelor’s of Education, specialized in French Immersion Pedagogy. Since my first year of teaching, I have been working with Grade 1 and 2 students, from Montreal, to Winnipeg, and now Ottawa, where I have been with AcadeCap since 2018. Working with students in Grade 1 and 2 is definitely something special. The students are curious, honest and so willing to learn and share - I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to learn from my students every day!
