What is Social-Emotional Learning?

Updated: Mar 14

Today is #SELday! ! Friday, March 11, 2022, thousands of educators, students, community organizers, and individuals are celebrating the second annual International SEL (Social-Emotional Learning) Day by showcasing, promoting, advocating and supporting SEL around the globe.

Here are 5 main Socio-Emotional Learning areas: ❤️ Self-Awareness: Maintaining a level of self-awareness is a cornerstone of social-emotional learning, allowing students to access a greater understanding of how positive actions lead to an improved self-image. 🧡 Self-Management: As social-emotional skills grown, children and young adults begin to understand the importance of self-management, especially as it pertains to intrinsic motivation, emotional management, and setting personal goals. 💛 Social Awareness: Centering around the golden rule of treating others as you would like to be treated, social-emotional learning encourages social awareness on both an individual level with personal relationships, and on a broader scope with regards to diverse perspectives. 💚 Relationship Skills: SEL skills empower students to develop relationship by providing strategies for conflict resolution and teaching that an awareness of the other person's needs is integral to building positive relationship. 💙 Responsible Decision-Making: Students are taught that making certain decisions can impact them in every facet of their lives (social, emotional, physical, and intellectual), and how to make positive decisions for positive growth and change. Our meticulously-designed board game Empower Empathy is made specifically to target all facets of SEL by incorporating fun and engaging cooperative play and evidence-based strategies.

So happy that The White House is recognizing today as International Social Emotional Learning Day!

The State of California is also recognizing Social Emotional Learning Day, too!


In other words, it's OFFICIAL!


Let's both recognize and strive to make mental wellbeing and social emotional learning a priority for our children!
