Emotional intelligence has always been one of the pillars of the SEK methodology. We encourage safe spaces to share our thoughts and emotions, moments for reflection, and give our students different tools for introspection to help them built a better understanding of themselves.
During our unit ¨The Art of Self Expression¨ second graders had the chance to practice the power of positive self-talk. It is proven that positive affirmations can be therapeutic. Most of these kids are feeling confused and scared as a result of being on lockdown because of a pandemic. Now, more than ever we should all feel empowered, ready for what is to come and what we now call ¨the new normal¨.
