Help me give my students opportunities to interact with Social/Emotional texts to read, learn about coping strategies, and how to deal with big emotions. These texts will encourage classroom community and build strong social/emotional foundations within each child.
My classroom is full of students who love to ask questions, expand their minds, and try new things. My students are excited and hopeful to be in the classroom again after school closings from COVID-19. They are all in need of support from me to build a welcoming environment, where we are prepared to grow together safely. Despite a varying range of learning needs, all of my students will receive an opportunity to blossom in first grade this year. And I am so excited to have them!!
My class is made up of children who love learning and interacting with one another. Because of school closures last year and virtual learning this year, the social/emotional learning needs of my children are greater than ever. In first grade, we are setting a goal to achieve higher growth and reach new heights together. With these texts, my students will build a community within each other and learn about relevant emotions and coping strategies.
These books included in my project teach children about the importance of friendship, positivity, collaboration, and setting goals.
The stories we will learn about show the significance of growth mindset, building each other up, and dealing with really big life emotions. I am so excited and grateful for the opportunity to show them how we can make a difference in the lives of our peers, teachers, community, and the world around us. Together, I know that we will move mountains in first grade!
