This teacher's guide is part of the Emotions for Life program, which seeks to develop social-emotional competencies by providing tools so that teachers can promote them with their students. This first grade guide offers a set of practical sessions for working in the classroom. These competencies allow children to get to know each other better, manage their emotions, relate better with others, make responsible decisions, decrease aggression, and increase satisfaction with their life.
