Social Emotional Learning Resources for 9-12
Supporting your student's overall social emotional health is an important part of their education and growth. During this unprecedented time of school closure, I hope you are able to use these resources to help your student understand that their feelings right now are okay. This doesn't give them the okay to be mean (though some student's may react this way because they don't know how else to express their emotions). It's often important to remind your student what they still have control over, especially when it seems as if they have zero control right now. On this page, you will find some articles to help you talk with and support your students. There are also links to different activities to help students (the entire family can use them) work on coping skills that are great ways to deal with the increased emotions right now. This page will be updated frequently with different activities and videos to continue to help your student grow in their social emotional learning.

WHAT IS SELF-CARE?
Self-care is important to maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself. It means doing things to take care of our minds, bodies, and souls by engaging in activities that promote well-being and reduce stress. Doing so enhances our ability to live fully, vibrantly, and effectively. The practice of self-care also reminds both you and others that your needs are valid and a priority.
