Sponsor: In today’s challenging times, we know how critical it is to make sure kids are equipped with social and emotional learning skills to cope with the world around them. That’s why I’m excited to highlight the WE Schools Program, made possible by The Allstate Foundation. It brings social and emotional learning together with service-learning, helping children build key skills such as resilience, empathy, perseverance and problem-solving. Whether you’re an educator looking for ways to integrate SEL into your lesson planning, or a parent looking to support your kid’s remote learning at home, go to WE.org/SEL for helpful educational resources and tips. Our friends at The Allstate Foundation and WE are committed to providing you with the resources you need to get started.

  1. This was a wonderful post about we future teachers can do to keep their students motivated and focused. In every classroom, there are students who need a little more movement and hands on activities to stay focused and this post did a great job of explaining why young students act the way they do. This really opened my eyes to the “meaning” behind every brain break and movement. I am excited to incorporate more movement breaks into my classroom so my students brains are ready to learn and grow throughout the entire day!
