ELA & SEL: A Perfect Pairing...A Virtual PK-5 Retreat with Author Renata Bowers
Through her national-award-winning Frieda B. series of picture books, Connecticut children's author Renata Bowers has developed an engaging method for utilizing written story to inspire the human story within every child... to help each child believe in self (autonomy) and to be part of something good (community), even in the midst of challenging chapters (resilience). The Frieda B. The Whole Child (FBTWC) ELA/SEL Toolkit & author-led PD is built on this method and book series. FBTWC provides an array of story-based resources to PK-5 educators for sharing with students, staff and families the beauty of using STORIES to move toward meaningful, relevant academic and social success... all the while complementing and enhancing the school's existing English Language Arts (ELA) and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) standards and initiatives. CAS invites you to join Renata as she shares her love of children, stories and building authentic community via this 90-minute virtual FBTWC informational retreat, which will include time for Q&A with Renata. Learn more about how FBTWC and PDs with Renata might be exactly the SEL resource you're looking for.
