Social Emotional Learning

Social Emotional Learning


 At Wilmot Elementary, we believe our students should learn social emotional skills alongside academic skills. We use the Second Step curriculum to teach these skills. This universal, classroom-based curriculum uses developmentally appropriate best practices to guide students in developing and practicing their ability to self-regulate, recognize and manage their emotions, problem solve, and increase their social communication skills. Extensive research shows a high correlation between the systemic teaching of social emotional skills and increasing levels of academic achievement and assessment scores. In addition to the instruction provided to all students at school, HomeLinks are provided so families know what is being taught and how to reinforce these concepts and skills at home.
