My Students

We are a group of second-grade students in a rural community. My school serves PreK-2nd grade. The students in my class work hard each and every day and love learning. Our school is unique in that it is the only K-2 school in our county. Roughly 75% of our school qualifies for free and reduced-price lunch. Many of our students come to school lacking in social and emotional skills.

As a teacher it is my job to teach and model appropriate social and emotional skills, provide opportunities for students to practice these skills as well as give students opportunities to apply these skills in social situations.

My Project

Research shows that students are more successful in school and in their daily life when they can manage themselves, empathize with others as well as make appropriate personal and social decisions. School is one of the first places students learn these skills.

In order to facilitate this learning, I would like to use a set of read aloud books to explicitly teach social and emotional skills.

By embedding this curriculum into my daily schedule, it is my hope that students will develop a more positive attitude towards oneself and others, a better relationship with peers as well as adults, decreased emotional stress, and reduced conduct problems.
