This month I will comment briefly the main topics we discussed in Social and Emotional Learning lessons. In Secondary section we reviewed resilience as an important value, not only related to our goals, but also with our well-being. After that, we introduced the concept of mindset, distinguishing between fixed and growth mindset and how these different approach can determinate how students face challenges in their lives.
Students learned the importance of not giving up and seeking new challenges through different class activities. They were totally engaged and they tried hard in order to get success. Sometimes frustration could appear but then they started to see obstacles with a growth mindset attitude, which kept them trying different solutions.
In Primary section we learned about cooperation and peaceful ways to solve conflicts, emphasizing “win-win” situations. Students understood how important is help each other and sharing if we want to reach our goals as a group. We played some cooperative games during the lessons as well as some roleplays to practice the new skills to handle conflicts.
I hope that all this set of new social and emotional abilities can help our students in the last part of the school year, right now when they need to show more resiliency, energy and effort. I am sure they will appreciate all they learned through this year and it will have a great impact in their way to perceive challenges.
Thank you all for your kind cooperation.
