Being Aware of Children’s Social- Emotional Needs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Great teachers create play environments that engage, motivate and stretch children into becoming thinkers and learners. The classroom environment is a perfect environment for children to learn and practice social emotional skills. We will discuss how to model expectations and give children opportunities to practice acquired skills through play-based learning. The connection of emotions, self-regulation, and language is the basis of the webinar.

As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • utilize lesson plans and teachable moments that are developmentally appropriate for building social emotional skills
  • explore strategies and language that promote effective communication to support emerging self-regulation
