How can educators promote critical Social Emotional Learning (SEL) skills into already packed schedules?

Caroline Maguire, a leader in social skills development, will demonstrate how recess, table / circle time and even walking through hallways can provide excellent, no-prep SEL learning opportunities. 

Learn how to help children who struggle with self-regulation, anxiety and  introversion learn to be flexible, try new things and join a group. By incorporating simple prompts and specific toys and games, play can be the way to help children learn to navigate into a group.
