How to Encourage Emotional and Social
Learning Among Kids?
Originally posted at: https://bit.ly/3AjWS9x
Are you mindful about the significance of social and emotional skills in kids? It is not
hard to figure out that social skills empower children to socialise and get along with
peers. The likelihood of understanding emotions and strengthening relationships can
certainly be challenging for kids without the necessary social or emotional skills.
Describing these as critical skills is only appropriate. It motivates children to interact and
discover relationships of their own, navigate social situations well, make better
decisions, and, of course, sense a boost in confidence.
Wondering about the ways to incorporate these skills into children’s lives? You may be
surprised to learn that the best preschools in Gurgaon have been incorporating
fundamental social and emotional skills into their learning modules for quite some time.
For instance, Alpine Convent School, also a recognised international school in
Gurugram, prioritises uplifting the mental well-being and social abilities of young
scholars.
In what ways can a school introduce
social and emotional learning in a
classroom?
Daily greetings – Little did you know that the practise of greeting teachers is not just
customary in a top school in Gurgaon. Why only students? Teachers can kick-start the
custom of welcoming children with a smile and a happy response to an early morning
greeting. Not sure how that helps? Well, it sparks a good connection between teachers
and students.
Class meetings – Speaking of meetings, one of the first things that pops in the minds
of most young learners is being criticised and made aware of a certain weakness. Time
to switch up the scenario. Alpine Convent, indeed, the best CBSE school in Gurgaon,
endeavours to arrange class meetings not to criticise but to boost students and applaud
them for their strengths. Besides, it also serves as an initiative to discuss problems,
solutions, and chalk out exciting class events together. Promoting a positive and
supportive learning environment inspires students with a strong sense of belonging.
Encourage learners to read out loud – Did you know that motivating students to read
aloud has its own perks? It is truly a smart hack. Educators can integrate perspectives
and emotions in the midst of the texts. For example, while a student is reading a certain
story, a teacher can speak about the emotions of a certain character from a different
perspective. An exchange of vision and emotions stirs the mind of a learner and
exposes the student to necessary emotions.
Work towards building problem solving skills in children – It is no secret that
an international school in Gurugram like Alpine Convent supports the holistic
development of students and not just academic encouragement. Although personalised
classes are available for students, teachers do not spoon-feed solutions when a learner
bumps into a roadblock. Instead, a learner is inspired to figure out a possible solution in
a snap. This is a promising initiative, encouraging students to harness their prompt
problem-solving skills.
Teamwork is a boon – Class projects and assignments are pretty common in a school
curriculum. By introducing more group assignments, students learn to value the
importance of socialisation and cooperation. Children learn to listen more, strategise in
groups, and collaborate with peers to wrap up tasks.
Assign responsibilities – Providing young kids with responsibilities is not quite
practised in all schools. However, the best preschools in Gurgaon familiarise children
with the fundamentals of responsibility right from a tender age. In fact, taking ownership
of one’s actions boosts a sense of self-worth in growing kids. Small duties like working
around the lunch counter or serving as a clean-up crew work wonders. Make
responsibilities fun and exciting. Give cool titles. Also, make sure to demonstrate the
work before entrusting the little one with a certain task.
Art activities are elementary – At Alpine Convent, the best CBSE school in Gurgaon,
art sessions are a regular part of the curriculum. Scribbling or painting serves as an
excellent coping mechanism for kids to reign in their stress. Did you always picture
stress as an adult thing? Well, anxiety and stress are just as common in children as
well. Art lets children vent their feelings and emotions on a piece of paper. Besides, art
promotes self-awareness in children and builds their relationship skills too.
Exemplify the benefits of positive self-talk – Always reminding a child of his or her
weakness dwindles the little one’s morale and confidence. Self-talking fires up a
powerful voice in one’s mind and sparks reassurance in kids too. Therefore,
encouraging students to practise self-talking explicitly is a good idea.
Introduce children to the concepts of mindfulness – Kids are mostly restless and
have a fleeting focus. Hence, feeling the odds of an emotional roller-coaster just before
an exam or an intense competition is only a given. Practicing mindfulness calms the
kids and helps them manage their emotions better. Of course, mastering mindfulness is
a lengthy process. Exposing kids to the idea nurtures the young mind.
Alpine Convent, the best convent school in Gurgaon, shows students the ropes of
mindfulness and breathing techniques. The school houses a serene yoga space for
students to relax and feel at one with their soul.
Unlike a planned curriculum, social and emotional learning has no set syllabus. It is the
approach that introduces the aspects of social and emotional skills in the young ones.
