After a long vacation, students came back ready for another intensive and interesting term in Social & Emotional Learning subject. I hope they practice some of the skills they learned last term during the holidays, since the main purpose of this subject is teaching abilities they can normally use in their daily lives. In the two weeks of lessons in February we talked about the anger and some strategies to deal with it. We saw the anger model (how anger works) and then we discussed different situations which can make us angry.
The next lesson we talked about different strategies and skills to deal with our anger, such as counting up to ten, deep breathing or taking a walk. We also analyze how important is thinking about the potential consequences of our behavior in order to avoid trouble related to anger reactions.
After the fruitful experience I had during last week on last term, taking some SEL lessons in Primary section, I decided to be in charge of two lessons a week with these grades, rotating every three weeks. Last month we talked about dealing with our worries and positive thinking, and how to set our goals.
I wish you all a very good second term, and I hope both students and teachers can keep the same level of positivity than last term. New events are coming soon (Art & Science Exhibition will be this month) and we al need to do our best to get our goals. Together we will reach, I am sure.
Thank you all for your kind cooperation.
