75/1085H SELebrate Bringing Social-Emotional Learning to Music Class through Children’s Literature by Jennifer Heldstab
Kid Lit Lessons to Love and SELebrate The phrase social-emotional learning—the SEL of SELebrate—has garnered alot of recent attention. But really, it is and has been a fundamental part of what all educators do—including and especially music teachers. SEL runs throughout our music curriculum, as we express emotions and work toward common goals though singing, dancing, and playing instruments. These SEL opportunities are made more explicit through the ten lessons in this resource, all of which are built around favorite children’s books.
