Education is not just about literacy and numeracy! Developing social and emotional competency is equally important.
I came across this statement in a recent Incredible Years newsletter.
“Encourage children to praise themselves and others! This skill will help them build up positive relationships with other children.”
For example, you might say “You must feel so proud of yourself for reading that whole chapter by yourself! Give yourself a pat on the back!”
‘Praising others’ might be a Key Competency focus for a Discovery Time session.
