This month in SEL (social-emotional lessons) we are focusing on identifying emotions in ourselves and others. It is important to recognize our own feelings because then we are able to address them, and when we recognize the feelings of others we can communicate with them more effectively. In grades 4-5 we are learning about empathy, which helps show kindness and respect to others. At home, if your student is having a hard time managing his/her emotions, ask them how they feel and why, even if it is obvious to you. Sometimes after they identify their own emotion, it makes it a bit easier for them to express what they need.
Amity Parents and Teachers Together is the parent-teacher organization serving both the Amity Elementary and Amity Middle Schools. Our mission is to provide additional support and funding for classroom and school related activities and programs.
