Daily SEL Lesson – Practicing Gratitude 4/27

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.

This week we are focusing on gratitude. Did you know that developing a gratitude practice can boost happiness? Check out the lessons this week to learn more.

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