The purpose of this project is to provide a manual for kindergarten to Grade 3 teachers in Prince George schools. This manual is to assist classroom teachers in leading their students and their parents on a purposeful explicit journey into and through the importance of social emotional learning (SEL). This project begins with background information regarding social emotional learning, why SEL needs to be taught in our classrooms, the importance of parent involvement in schools and their understanding of SEL, and teachers understanding the significance of SEL being taught in schools. A literature review explores what SEL is, the importance of SEL in the school setting, the impact of parent involvement with SEL in the school setting, and the implication of teachers knowing and explicitly teaching SEL to their students. An outline of how the project is structured is offered. Finally, an educator's manual for instruction on SEL to students in kindergarten to Grade 3 classrooms in Prince George schools will be created. The manual outlines the procedures for implementing parent afternoons including suggested activities and prerequisite teaching of the students.
