Incorporating social emotional learning into the classroom can be challenging, especially with the range of developmental ages and curricular expectations involved. However, we now know more than ever the value appropriate experiences and interactions have on the growing child and their developing brain. We'll consider how to provide secure relationships, opportunities for rich interactions, problem solving through play, and modeling language in early education classrooms. Social emotional learning occurs through explicit instructional strategies, teacher practices, modeling, and integration within academic curricular areas already being implemented. Learning to use these methods will allow for the best developmental outcomes for young children.
