Mrs. David has discovered a simple, yet effective, way of encouraging students to improve their Social Emotional skills through the use of journaling. She has used SEL journaling in her inner city middle school remedial reading classes and is ready to share her tips, tricks, and best prompts with you! In this webinar, you will learn how her simple 5-minute journal routine transformed her classroom, and how you, too, can get starting teaching your students empathy, leadership, and more. Social Emotional Learning skills help children learn to manage their emotions, develop empathy, build stronger relationships, and build a foundation for their social and emotional well-being. Sometimes, teaching and fostering these skills is not as easy as it sounds. Mrs. David's 5-minute journal routine gives you an easy, quick, and effective way to get started.

Great idea for writing (5 minutes)
Thank you for sharing. Easy to follow and meaningful. Love how you presented this and how the kids become better in tune with themselves.

We will be doing SEL journals in our preschool and Prek classrooms.
I liked how the presenter had consistent prompts, so the students could see the progression of their responses. We have "Do Now/bell ringer" type of material, but it constantly changed, so I think some students felt they needed an extra layer of understanding to even participate in some bell ringers.
