“In this project, students will demonstrate their learning of social and emotional strategies through the creation of animations and the leading of parent workshops. Each month a group of students will make an animated video about a situation at home or school in which they can implement a social and emotional strategy they have discussed in their daily community circles. Students will lead monthly workshops for parents and the greater school community, showing their animation, demonstrating social and emotional skill proficiency and bridging the school-home gap by engaging parents around the social and emotional skill building they do at school.”
