This workshop will focus on enhancing children’s social-emotional development through the use of books that teach emotional vocabulary, activities that foster friendship, and strategies that support children to calm their bodies when they experience big feelings.  Materials will be provided for you to take and use in your classroom immediately.  We will be using Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) strategies.
