2. School staff monitor and reduce negative languaging: Reduce negative and blaming language and increase positive and solution seeking language 
3. During Staff Professional Development, introduce and model new SEL concepts, ideas, tools, resources, and best practices

4. Using Mindfulness Meditation and Somatic Quieting to maintain focus and restore calm to the classroom

Scandinavian and Japanese educators teach manners, character, and social etiquette before academic skills and knowledge. The goal for the first 2-3 years of school is not to judge the child's knowledge and academic readiness but to nurture a polite, well mannered, empathetic, responsible, and caring child. 

The cornerstone of SEL efforts is the delivery of five essential skills and competencies to students (CASEL, 2013):
  1. Self-awareness: recognizing and labeling one's feelings and accurately assessing one's strengths and limitations
  2. Self-management: regulating emotions, delaying gratification, managing stress, motivating oneself, and setting and working toward achieving goals
  3. Social awareness: showing empathy, taking others' perspectives, and recognizing and mobilizing diverse and available supports
  4. Relationship skills: clear communication, accurate listening, cooperation, nonviolent and constructive conflict resolution, and knowing when and how to be a good team player and a leader
  5. Responsible decision making: making ethical choices based on consideration of feelings, goals, alternatives and outcomes, and planning and enacting solutions with potential obstacles anticipated

Why is social emotional learning so important in the primary grades?

Social emotional learning (SEL) helps students develop and build good character traits (honesty, caring, compassion, respect, fairness,...), build real friendships, enhance empathy, resilience, etiquette, manners, and emotional stability. Students that learn to master and manage their emotions are less prone to act-out, talk back, openly defy adults and disrupt the learning environment in schools. Students and teachers can use hands on (SEL) activities, conflict resolution modeling, role-playing, dialogue, and read-alouds to help children understand their emotions and feelings. Understanding the emotions and feelings of others and their own helps students make better choices and wise actions.  Students that have well developed social emotional intelligence are able to adapt and overcome obstacles and setbacks much faster than students with little or poor social emotional intelligence.

Phenomenon-based learning (PhBL or PhenoBL) is a hands on constructivist pedagogy (Jean Piaget) where students develop a deep understanding of a real world problem and or phenomenon in an authentic context that crosses all subjects. Students may study a concept like :time", not as a math subject, but in a holistic approach that may include varied cultural concepts of time, origins and history of time, development of clocks, train schedules, etcetera.
Phenomenon-based learning (PhBL or PhenoBL) is a form of student lead learning and exploration that incorporates collaboration, curiosity, creativity, multiliteracy, multidisciplinary academics, soft skills, and constructivist pedagogical theories. Students construct, control, and create their own learning processes using authentic real-world problems and contex, they learn the importance of what, how, and why they need to learn critical thinking skills. Students self-select and lead their own learning by reflecting on their collaborative experiences and that of their peers. Focusing on the soft skills of communicating and collaborating on teams to solve problems. Students learn the what, the how, and the way they need to find and solve real-world real-context problems. 

Phenomenon-based pedagogy is not really new, teachers that design and incorporate thematic based multidisciplinary lessons and units will easily identify and adapt to PhBL or PhenoBL. The focus is not on what knowledge is being learned or taught but the skill of learning; of better ways to learn and problem solve. A thematic topic or concept is based on a real-world phenomenon by using a gestalt or holistic collaborative approach instead of a singular academic subject-based transfer of knowledge teaching approach.


Philosophy for Children | Philosophical Inquiry for Kids (P4C)

Philosophy for Children or Philosophical Inquiry for Kids (P4C), is
a pedagogical philosophy that aims to teach inductive/deductive reasoning and Socratic and argumentative dialectical skills to young scholars.

Jean Piaget the Swiss developmental psychologist known for his work on child development theorized that children were not capable of critical or analytical thinking until age 11 or 12. Teachers that work with younger children find that all children benefit from philosophical inquiry and yes even in primary school. 

Furthermore, there is more data, research and concrete evidence that show the real world benefits of teaching young scholars Philosophical Inquiry and inductive/deductive reasoning skills early in school. Students that study Philosophy see big improvements in academic skills and overall enjoyment in learning.

Teaching Western and/or Eastern Philosophy to Students! 

Stoicism, Cynicism, Buddhism, ZEN Buddhism, TAOISM, Apollonian and Dionysian, and JEDI Wisdom and Philosophy: Learning and teaching Western and/or Eastern Philosophical Traditions can be transformative for students! Using Socratic Seminars and Discussions are a quick way to open up a dialog and start Philosophical Inquiry and inductive/deductive reasoning
"Higher Order Thinking".

  • What is wisdom?
  • What is philosophy?
  • Why could reading about multiple philosophical traditions be the best way to learn about wisdom?
  • What would be some alternative meanings of wisdom?
  • What is another way to look at Wisdom vs. Philosophy?
  • Would you explain why it is necessary or beneficial, and who benefits from learning about or adopting a ZEN, TAOISM, or even Jedi philosophy?
  • What are some of the strengths and weaknesses of the different philosophical traditions?
  • What is the point of view. a theme, an idea being presented in the... quote?
"you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view." Obi-Wan Kenobi

“Doing nothing is better than being busy doing nothing.” Lao Tzu

"No! Try not! Do or do not, there is no try." YODA
 "The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don't tell you what to see."Alexandra K.Trenfor
"Attachment leads to jealously. The shadow of greed, that is." YODA
It is under the greatest adversity that there exists the greatest potential for doing good, both for oneself and others.

“If you define yourself by the power to take life, the desire to dominate, to possess…then you have nothing.” Obi-Wan Kenobi
Teachers who are able to move mountains are the ones who start by carrying away the smallest stones.

3. All great teachers open doors for students, but the student must enter by themselves. 

The Buddha in the Classroom Quotes ― Donna Quesada
“When you blame, you open up a world of excuses, because as long as you're looking outside, you miss the opportunity to look inside, and you continue to suffer.”

“The effects you will have on your students are infinite and currently unknown; you will possibly shape the way they proceed in their careers, the way they will vote, the way they will behave as partners and spouses, the way they will raise their kids.”
“Courage is often associated with aggression, but instead should be seen as a willingness to act from the heart.”

“What we can change is our perceptions, which have the effect of changing everything.” 
“Each situation is a blossom to be picked with a curious spirit.”

A life full of laughter and learning is richer than a palace full of sadness.“Trying to understand is like straining through muddy water. Have the patience to wait! Be still and allow the mud to settle.” Lao Tzu

Even when we stumble and fall down, it doesn’t mean we’ve chosen the wrong path.
If no mistake have you made, yet losing you are… a different game you should play. YODA


Always look on the bright side of life (Monty Python). If you don't understand this, polish what is dull in your life until it begins to shine.
Conquer anger with non-anger.Conquer badness with goodness.Conquer meanness with generosity.Conquer dishonesty with truth.
~ The Buddha
A thousand-mile journey begins with just one step.

Never be afraid of going slowly, be scared of stopping. 


“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger; anger leads to hate; hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you.”  Yoda

Don’t speak if it doesn’t improve on silence. Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
“When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new.” Dalai Lama XIV

It’s better to be a teacher for a day than to be a shadow for a 1,000 days.

As the Zen Master served tea to his new student, the student carried on talking about his own opinions, theories, and ideas. The Zen Master remained silent as he poured more tea into his guest’s teacup and even after it was full, the Zen Master continued pouring!

The student watched the tea overflow and spill onto the table. He could no longer hold it in and burst out, “Stop! Can’t you see that it is full? No more tea can go in!”

“Exactly.” The Zen Master agreed. “You are like this tea-cup, full of your own opinions, assumptions, and theories. You have come for teaching but how can I show you wisdom if you don’t first empty your cup?"

The temptation to give up will be much stronger just before you reach your goal.

Social-Emotional Learning Activities, Lessons and Worksheets

Why is social emotional learning so important in the primary grades?

Social and emotional learning (SEL) helps students develop and build good character traits (honesty, caring, compassion, respect, fairness,...), build real friendships, enhance empathy, resilience, etiquette, manners, and emotional stability. 
Students that learn to master and manage their emotions are less prone to act-out, talk back, openly defy adults and disrupt the learning environment in schools. Students and teachers can use hands on (SEL) activities, conflict resolution modeling, role-playing, dialogue, and read-alouds to help children understand their emotions and feelings. Understanding the emotions and feelings of others and their own helps students make better choices and wise actions.  Students that have well developed social emotional intelligence are able to adapt and overcome obstacles and setbacks much faster than students with little or poor social emotional intelligence.
