Summer Social Emotional Learning Activities
The goal of Summer Social Emotional Learning Activities is to provide opportunities for students to learn anytime and anywhere. The support staff of the Rock Island-Milan school district have been working hard to determine how we can continue to provide valuable learning opportunities for all of our students around social and emotional learning.
As students learn social and emotional skills, it is important that they have opportunities to practice and apply the skills in actual situations and be recognized for using these skills across a variety of settings. Prioritizing social and emotional learning in schools, and building bonds between students, parents, schools, coaches, and more is crucial in creating a safe learning community and helping to give kids the skills and social and emotional tools they’ll need for success.
This opportunity will provide meaningful independent activities for students to continue their learning at home. We have created a choice board for students to use during the summer weeks. Students are allowed to select the activities they would like to complete and discuss with a family member. There will also be activities for families and staff to improve our own skills around social emotional learning.
