As the country and the world respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are all feeling a range of emotions – fear, anxiety, stress, and uncertainty. At IDEA Public Schools we understand how important it is to attend to the social and emotional needs that arise during stressful times like these.
Social-emotional learning offers us a way to explore and express our emotions, build relationships, and support each other – children and adults alike – during this challenging time. Below are some resources to continue to promote social–emotional learning with students while at home.
