In today's show, Robin Fox shares four techniques you can use in your face-to-face or distance classroom to connect with your student's social and emotional lives. She reminds us that student emotions are constantly in motion but we have to help them so we can unlock their ability to live better lives, listen, and learn.

I loved how you used the weather and emojies to teach kids about their emotions in such a positive way. I also loved how you used the rose-bud-thorn example to also explain to kids that they will have bad days, but there are things to look forward to. Thanks for sharing such great examples I will have to use these myself!
