The process through which children gain the information, attitudes, and abilities to understand their emotions, express caring concerns for others, develop meaningful connections, make responsible decisions, and handle interpersonal situations is known as social and emotional learning. SEL is important to students in my classroom because it improves academic skills, decreases depression, improves stress managment, and increased likelihood of future success.
What is Social-emotional learning?
Self-Awarness: accurately analyzing one's feelings, interests, values, and capabilities; retaining a solid sense of self-confidence. Self-Managment: managing one's emotions to deal with stress, restraining urges, and perserving in the face of difficulties; correctly expressing emotions; and creating and tracking progress toward personal and academic objectives. Social Awarness: taking others' perspectives and empathizing with them; identifying and respecting individual and group similarites and differences; including understanding and making the most us of family, school, and community resources. Responsible Decsion Making: making decisions based on ethical standards, saftey concerns, social norms, respect for others, and consequences for behaviors that contribute to a school's and community's well-being. Relationship Skills: creating and maintaing cooperatively healthy and fulfilling realtionships; managing and resolving interpersonal conflict; and getting help when needed.
How does this lead to prevention in mental health concerns?
SEL helps support students mental health issues helps students build personal conncections, improve positive behavior and provides a safe enviroment. In Pre-K, SEL in the classroom addresses culture because my classroom includes many activites that discusses similarites and differences which includes all studnets. Social and emotional learning in my classroom is relevant because it displays all five SEL compentecies to help with the student's learning and growth.

To help promote SEL in a student's everyday lifestyle here are some examples:
- For Parents: give your child responsiblities, allow them to make choices, and show appreciation to your child.
- For Teachers: give out classroom jobs, try teamwork activites, read books about social and emotional learning, and build a realtionship with your student by doing a classroom greeting.
