On Tuesday at the parent learning workshop, we discussed the social and emotional learning of primary students at SIS. Throughout the school year, students learn about personal safety, bullying prevention, and transitions. A few important notes from the workshop:
-we empower students by helping them learn strategies to solve problems, rather than making choices for them. At SIS we use Kelso's Choice wheel to teach problem solving strategies (see attachment)
-we can model positive personal management and decision making by specifically talking with children about how we make choices
-to prevent bullying, students are taught what it is and how to help each other
-as part of the safety curriculum, students learn how to keep themselves safe. They also learn the difference between safe touch, unsafe touch, and unwanted touch
We hope to see you at the next parent workshop!
