Grade 4

Description

Fourth graders deepen their ability to consider others’ perspectives as they begin exploring the notion of culture and how it impacts their own and others’ communication styles. This inquiry opens the door to understanding how our cultural norms and expectations can impact the way our words and actions are received, especially by someone whose culture is unlike our own. Students use interactive posters and group activities to practice making intentional, appropriate choices and to show respect in a variety of circumstances. Additionally, they use SEL stories and interactive learning structures to explore the implications of bullying both online and off, deepening their emotional intelligence and ability to empathize with others. Fourth grade students become more focused, self-aware learners who understand how to be a positive presence in their classroom and community.

The activities range from interactive partner work and role-playing to quiet visualizations and guided reflection. The activities are brief and versatile, so they can be used whenever students need an additional few moments to refocus and reset.

This newsletter communicates what SEL skills students are practicing each week and offers conversation prompts, guided reflections, read-alouds, and suggestions for students and families to practice SEL in their communities. The School-to-Home Connection encourages SEL growth beyond the classroom and affords students and families the opportunity to deepen their SEL skills together.
