  3. 3. Where is Your Social Skills Center? • We all agree that social and emotional learning is a developmental domain. Yet most early childhood programs omit a formal center in which children can develop these skills.Simple Solutions Educational Services © 2009 asearcya@aol.com
  4. 4. What Are You Feeling? • Simple Solutions Educational Services consulted with Ezzard Charles Montessori School on Chicago’s South Side during the 2007/2008/2009 school years with the help of a quality improvement grant. We discussed using concrete items to help children learn about abstract ideas, like feelings and conflict resolution. • When there was a conflict the teacher would ask children what they were feeling. These preschool children would then find their names and match them to these feeling faces they created! Creating a conflict resolution center allowed the children to use their literacy skills to find their names, their problem solving skills and language skills to think of solutions and math skill to eliminate solutions. We embedded social emotional learning into academicsSimple Solutions Educational Services © 2009 asearcya@aol.com
  5. 5. Cranky lotion? This is a CEDA Head Start classroom we provideconsultation services to in Bridgeview, Illinois. The teacher calls this area a “safe place” in which children come, and use manipulatives and concrete tools to help them think about and LEARN about their emotions.

  6. 6. Simple Solution KITS! Teachers NOT Trying new Ideas? Increase support! • It can be hard to learn something new and then have to create a whole new area without support. After our trainings the teachers were given tools and given support in the classroom on how to use them. • We gave Edgewater Early Learning Center in Chicago a “Simple Solutions Kit” It included tools that the teachers could use to create the new centers! The teachers discussed what tools they liked best and which they would like to try first! Teachers were then more likely to implement new ideas shown at the trainings!Simple Solutions Educational Services © 2009 asearcya@aol.com
  7. 7. Do you tell children what NOT to do?---Try telling And Showing them what to DO! Simple SolutionsParent Tip! Copy these pictures and send them home to show parents what their child can do as well! Simple Solutions Educational Services © 2009 asearcya@aol.com
