Grade 4/5 ESLR Skills and Social/Emotional Growth

Our Grade 4 and 5 students are currently compiling all of their learned ESLR skills to engage with each other (Collaboration) in social/emotional games. Students play Totika, the Ungame, and The Social and Emotional Competence Game to gain insight into each others’ internal experiences, as well as process and reflect on their feelings and thoughts (Communication, Global Citizenship, Complex Thinking and Independent Learning). As these games have no “finish” or winner/loser, the students also learn the value of process, not end-result. Additionally, they are beginning to recognize the value in self-reflection and sharing inner experiences with others. I’m really humbled to see how far our students have come in their growth this year.
