At Lamar Elementary, we understand that emotions matter! We are excited to use RULER, an evidence-based approach to social and emotional learning that helps school communities integrate the practice of emotional intelligence into daily life.
Why do we care about social and emotional skills? Decades of research shows that emotional intelligence is essential to effective teaching and learning, sound decision making, physical and mental health, and success in school and beyond. Research also shows that when schools and homes partner to support children’s emotional development, children not only feel better, but they do better.
RULER teaches five key skills of emotional intelligence:
Recognizing emotions in one’s self and others.
Understanding the causes and consequences of emotions.
Labeling emotions accurately.
Expressing emotions appropriately.
Regulating emotions effectively.
We integrate RULER skills into our academic curriculum and provide opportunities for students and all the key adults involved in their education – teachers, administrators, and family members – to learn, model and practice these skills.
We understand how important it is to partner with you so our children can use these tools both at home and at school.
