SEL Week of 5/26
THIS week, we are going to talk more about our FEELINGS.
We cannot forget about managing our feelings!
With so much change happening, it is more important than EVER to have strategies to manage our feelings. This goes for adults, too!
REMEMBER: When you are having strong feelings, you can create a spot in your house called a COOL DOWN CORNER. See PDF Below for how to make your own!
Below is also a PDF for a feelings Check-in :)
Try to do a FEELINGS CHECK-IN once EVERY DAY!
