Welcome back to school 2022!  We are so excited to have our lovely scholars back in school.  One of my favorite things about back to school is to hear how great and exciting our students' summer break was. 

 

I would like to focus on Self-awareness as an SEL theme this month.  What is self- awareness?  Self-awareness is being able to recognize emotions and thoughts and how it influences behavior.  Self-awareness is one of the most important skills we can teach our students, but it is not impossible.   

 

Here at P.S. 201, we teach our students that it is ok to have strong emotions (anger, sadness, frustration, disgust, etc), but it is not ok to act on them.  Once our students can recognize their feeling, we teach them to verbally express how they are feeling.  For example, they may say “I am feeling very angry because……” or “I am sad because……”. It is critical that our students can appropriately verbalize how they are feeling and then be given strategies/tools to help them manage those feelings.   

You can use these same tools and strategies to help your child work through their feelings.  When they come home from school, get into a conversation about how the day went and how many feelings did they managed throughout the day.  You will be surprised to hear how much detail they would be able to tell you.  These are early life skills they would need to make them successful in everything that they do!
