Emotional Intelligence Apps and Games
It can be tough for students of any age to understand what they're feeling and to channel those feelings in ways that help them be better people and better learners. The key for these kids is emotional intelligence: knowing what emotions are, how they work, and how to use them and manage them for social interaction and learning. Students also need the capacity to recognize other people's emotions, to discriminate among the different feelings, and label them appropriately. This collection of top-notch apps and games will help students with everything from anger management to emotion identification to meditation.
Please use SafeArrival or call the school if your child will be absent. If your child is sick, please call the school directly.
