Many elementary school classrooms lack a social-emotional curriculum, specifically, in helping students learn how to practice kindness. When children are able to learn social-emotional skills, they may become more mindful of their peers' feelings and build positive relationships with their peers. Kindness may also lead to reducing bullying. To help support kindness and increase positive peer relationships, I will be creating a three-day social-emotional learning lesson for 4th graders at Bay View Academy Charter School in Monterey, California.
