Social and Emotional Development
Throughout the school year, students will learn and practice social and emotional skills in the classroom and at play. These skills are the following: integrate Christian values into class activities, participate in prayers, follow directions from the teacher, socialize with others, respect the property of others, exhibit self-control and verbalize emotions, adjust to new situations and activities, display age appropriate attention span, share with others, play cooperatively, display confidence in abilities, and participate in class activities.
The significance of social and emotional development is seen in every area of a child's life. A child will have a strong foundation for later development if he or she can manage personal feelings, understand the needs and feelings of others, and interact positively with them.
