SEL/Teaching Tips of the Week

SEL Tip #16 - This visual is just a little reminder of the power of laughter and asks: How do you bring joy and laughter into your classroom every day? Our SEL Survey responses through Panorama indicate that there are strong relationships in the District (83%-91%) based on student responses.  When asked specifically about how frequently they felt positive emotions - while also noting that it is perfectly natural for human beings to have a range of emotions - students reported 55%-67% depending on the building. Knowing this, how can we actively work to be “bucket fillers” and bring more laughter and joy into our days?  Talk with your students about what they do that brings them JOY and how they can actively work to fill their own “bucket” and that of their peers!  This would be a great circle prompt!
