Emotions Matter

The Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence says, "Emotions drive learning, decision-making, creativity, relationships, and health" Our theme for classroom lessons in October is Emotions.  In the early grades we are primarily working on identifying and labeling feelings.  In grades two and three we teach subtle distinctions between feelings using the Mood Meter and teach about empathy.  In grades four and five we focus on teaching the strategy of taking a Meta-Moment to reflect on emotions, thus helping with emotional regulation.
