My Project

My students have lived through a very difficult two years. The trauma of the pandemic has devastated our classrooms and our social/emotional growth. The need for focusing on mental health and more social emotional learning is greater than ever.

Social and emotional resources are of the utmost importance to support my students' overall well-being.

The resources that I am requesting will help teach my students about the different types of emotions and feelings that they experience. My students at times feel happy, sad, scared, and mad and are not able to put into words how they are feeling.

With these new tools, my students will be able to develop their social emotional skills and how to regulate their own bodies and minds. They will allow my students to practice and learn with hands-on resources. These resources will support students in their growth daily.
