These are the skills they were introduced to and will continue to practice...I think they are good for ALL students:
Students can continue practicing by:
Identifying their own and others’ feelings through looking at faces, recognizing body clues, listening to voices, and watching what is happening.
Being aware of expected vs. unexpected behaviors. (Help your child practice by role playing what behaviors you expect before you go to the store/a friend’s house/a birthday party)
Predicting feelings. (Help your child by asking, “How do you think your friend might feel if…”)
Sharing feelings. (Help your child practice by sharing your own feelings: “I feel happy when you offer to set the table.”)
Understanding and accepting difference in others, as well as seeing similarities. (Help your child practice by saying, “It’s okay for your friend to be different from you. You two are alike in some ways too. How?”)
Listening. (Help your child practice by sharing good news/bad news then taking turns asking follow up questions.)
In general, simply listening and talking about feelings helps children be more understanding of others. It also helps create a more positive classroom environment.
