Social Emotional Learning at Carver

This week, our students will be exploring the important value of honesty as part of our focus on the November skill spotlight. Being honest aligns with our lessons on Emotion Management in Second Step Unit 2. Students will learn about how being truthful helps them understand their feelings better and why it's important, while also discussing how being dishonest can have negative effects on them. For more information, go to Ms. McCloud's Website for grade specific family connection resources.
