We know that to teach students, we must relate to educate and one of the first things we must relate to is their emotions in that moment. 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. Let's tune in to our student's social-emotional learning and help them succeed.

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!
I really love the way you teach the kids about their emotions in such a positive way. By using the weather and emojis to help explain them too. Amazing! Definitely gonna use this in my classroom in the future.
