Abstract

The author inquired, “How can social and emotional learning be embedded into literacy instruction at the 5th grade level?” This led the author to research the five competencies of social and emotional learning: self- awareness, self- management, social- awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making, and how each of these can be implemented throughout all academic areas. The teacher plays a crucial role in the social and emotional learning of children. The author created a curriculum that embeds each of the five competencies of social and emotional learning into both morning meeting activities and into literacy lessons.
