Daily SEL Lesson – Mindfulness 4/3

Daily SEL Lesson – Mindfulness 4/3

Welcome to the CLS Daily SEL lesson. Each day, Monday through Friday, we will provide a new social-emotional learning lesson designed to build emotional intelligence and resilience. There will be a lesson for elementary students and a lesson for secondary students that include media (videos, audios, or text) and simple step-by-step instructions.

We hope that the lessons are helpful to you and your children.
