Social and Emotional Learning can be seen in many ways across a campus. It may be a teacher teaching a lesson to the whole class on managing anxiety, a student helping another student after a fall on the playground, or a whole campus activity promoting SEL. As we visited campuses in AISD, we have seen many creative ways to celebrate SEL campus wide. The following images are a few of the stellar examples we have seen so far this year.

Here’s a way to start off your morning right! At Linder Elementary they use positive self-talk to set daily goals in this Learners’ Creed. It can be heard campus wide over the PA each morning.
At Zavala Elementary (above) and Metz Elementary (below) students sing the Second Step songs at a special morning assembly to share the new skills they are learning with the entire student body. At Zavala, Kindergarten and 1st grade students sing The Feelings Song. At Metz, 2nd grade students show off their dance skills with The Calm It Down Song.
The friendly faces of teachers and administrators at Mendez Middle School greet students with a smile and a handshake. Nothing beats a warm welcome first thing in the morning!
