Prior to beginning work on this discussion independently research one social and emotional resource that could be used in the classroom and shared with families. When we think about overall well-being, it is important to consider our children and families. In this discussion, you will summarize a way to help families learn more about social and emotional development in young children.
In your initial post,
Describe one idea, activity, or game about a topic related to the behavioral, social, and emotional development of young children. This activity would eventually be placed into a “thematic” backpack to be sent home with students and families for learning about the topic. Explore how families can learn together, and be sure to discuss what supplies you would include (if any would be needed) for families to engage in the activity.
Construct a family-friendly and visually appealing introduction letter (no longer than one page) that explains the backpack’s purpose. You may wish to use colored fonts, graphics, or pictures for a fun and engaging tone.
