Working on social and emotional intelligence in kindergarten

What kinds of social and emotional skills are we working on in kindergarten?

In kindergarten we…

  • use our Peace Table to strengthen communication and peacemaking skills.
  • use feelings charts, journaling, projects and role-playing to recognize social cues and solve social dilemmas.
  • practice yoga and meditation to support calm, focused and flexible bodies and minds.
  • take responsibility for classroom jobs and routines that support our community and our space.
  • build a classroom community (kehilah) based on respect (kavod), kindness (hesed), and peace (shalom).
