Understanding and Managing Emotions Workshop

Self-management is an important component of social and emotional learning. For students to achieve this competency, they must understand how different situations can influence their emotions and behavior, as well as how to respond in a healthy and constructive way. In this virtual workshop, students in grades 4-6 will learn how to identify different emotions, manage strong feelings, use calming strategies to cope, and identify resources that can help when they need support or are worried about a friend.

Intended Audience: Elementary School Students in Grades 4-6

Duration: 40 minutes
