Decorating your classroom is important, and anchor charts are one of those teacher favorite ways to add some color to the classroom space and remind students of important information at the same time. Social emotional learning, or SEL, is incredibly important. And these creative teachers have turned some of the concepts into memorable anchor chart ideas!
Core Concepts of Social Emotional Learning
There are five main competencies under the umbrella of social emotional learning. The overarching concepts include self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. Underneath these concepts are a list of more specific skills like impulse control, self-discipline, and self-reflection.
It’s important for educators to focus on encouraging students to practice the use of any of the concepts underneath the social emotional learning umbrella. Displaying anchor charts with important tips around the room can help to remind students of what they should be focusing on, and may even benefit their decision-making skills when interacting with other students.
