Social Emotional Learning at Carver

Second Step® Elementary is a research-based social-emotional learning program designed to improve children’s social-emotional skills. This week students will continue with Unit 2 focused on Emotion Management. Students learn how to identify and label emotions and use emotion management strategies—including stress management for older students—to calm strong feelings.

For more information, go to Ms. McCloud's Website for grade specific family connection resources.
