Many grade school children may not have yet developed social-emotional skills and may have difficulty managing their emotions when they have challenges or difficulties in school. Children may feel overwhelmed, break rules, act out, or cry as a result of not knowing how to control their emotions. When children learn how to manage their stress and regulate their emotions, they are able to have positive relationships and perform better in school. In order to address the issue of lack of social-emotional skills in elementary school children, I created a two-day lesson for first graders at Barrett Elementary School in Morgan Hill, California.
