How can we help our children feel safe and secure when we’re struggling ourselves? The COVID-19 pandemic brought on so much uncertainty: plans that constantly changed, long-awaited events canceled, new guidelines replaced by newer guidelines, and ongoing adjustments to daily routines. We all have feelings! Join us to learn ways and resources to help kids develop a strong emotional toolkit and enable them to better able to handle the ups and downs of life.
We all have feelings! Join us to learn ways and resources to help kids develop a strong emotional toolkit and enable them to better able to handle the ups and downs of life. Anxieties and insecurities affect the wellbeing and ability of our young learners to focus and learn. Featuring content from KET, PBS KIDS and others, this session will focus on media tools that can be used to teach the youngest learners skills like patience, dealing with frustration, and how to understand and manage their feelings.
Alongside the stressors and difficulties students experienced in their pre-pandemic lives, they must still deal with disruptions and worries as the pandemic continues. Regardless of the cause, anxieties and insecurities affect their wellbeing and ability to focus and learn. In this workshop, we will begin with the need for SEL in traditional and non-traditional educational settings then focus on how to integrate specific lessons into existing curricula. Many NEW free multimedia resources, with suggestions for their use, will be offered.
Young children are regularly engaging with media in a variety of settings. The TEC at the Erikson Institute issued their Media Literacy in Early Childhood Report to help offer a way to support and develop young children’s media literacy skills. Join us as we discuss ways to help young children find reliable information in a world of misinformation.
