Many students and teachers welcome the holiday season and the break it brings from instruction, testing, and homework after a busy fall. But the holidays can also bring anxiety and stress. Students feel the pressure just as much as adults, and some do not feel comfort and joy during the holidays.
Social and emotional learning (SEL) can support students and teachers alike through the holidays and the long winter break. Students can benefit from extra encouragement and help this time of year, and educators can take advantage of the downtime to de-stress and recharge.
Check out our 2019 Holiday Guide, SEL Support for Students and Teachers During the Holidays. Included are tips, lessons, and activities to help keep the holiday season merry and bright for your students and help educators finish the school year strong.
Here is a preview of what’s in the guide:
- Use SEL in the Classroom: Try our fun holiday classroom activities that will help students build and leverage SEL.
- Encourage SEL At-Home: Keep students on-track and learning during winter vacation with SEL.
- Help Educators De-Stress: Help educators relax and recharge so they are ready to finish the year strong.
- Start the New Year with a Bang: Create a fresh start after winter break by switching your routine, setting new goals, and updating classroom rules.
