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.

Thank you, very helpful to understand my teaching procedures
Nice job
Liked the idea first thing in class writing as a starter activity! Also having students think about themselves and how it helps their self-esteem.
Super ideas to use with journal writing and leadership building.
Thanks for sharing. Some great ideas.

Thanks for a lot of great ideas! I teach kinder but will have them start drawing or writing in journals while they are at home. (The sad thing is I had brand new journals waiting for them when they returned after spring break..but they didn't!)
" It is not a validation contest" I agree. Thank you
