Class Parties - An SEL Opportunity for Parents and Teachers
I’m often approached about how parents and teachers can collaborate and create social emotional learning opportunities for children. The truth is, SEL opportunities exist in every corner of the classroom. Take the annual classroom holiday party as an example. Typically, this parent-led party involves a combination of a read-aloud, a craft-making, and a snack. The kids enjoy it—it is a party, after all—but there is something missing from the typical party formula: the opportunity to bring intention and meaning to this tradition.
Why not rethink your child’s classroom parties in an SEL-inspired way and develop an experience that is more enriching and meaningful?
