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.

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 academics

Cranky lotion? This is a CEDA Head Start classroom we provide
consultation 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.

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!

  • 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. 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 academics Simple Solutions Educational Services © 2009 asearcya@aol.com
  • 5. Cranky lotion? This is a CEDA Head Start classroom we provide consultation 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. Simple Solutions Educational Services © 2009 asearcya@aol.com
  • 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
