Daily SEL Lesson – Self-Awareness Through Mindfulness 4/21
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.

Oftentimes we learn of or hear about social injustice but we do not feel equipped to make a difference. The first step in becoming an advocate is to understand that we are all different and accept that difference is good!
Honest and courageous conversations are just the beginning of our work for social justice. When we develop safe spaces to have these conversations in schools, we work together to dismantle oppression. Let's get talking!
There have been many conversations going on about equity and equality in education. You might hear these words on TV or on social media, but what do these words mean? What is the difference? Our new SEL lesson offers an answer.
