Teaches children how to express and regulate their feelings, understand the emotions of others, and establish and maintain healthy social relationships. The Kimochis® Keys to Communication provide children the words and actions that promote social-emotional development, support positive behavior and contribute to academic success. These strategies help children to listen, speak and act in ways that keep a strong communication connection with each other, even in challenging social situations!

Lessons and activities from the educator’s guide that utilize strategies from a restorative practices model, such as discussion, conferencing and circles, will be outlined. Participants will be introduced to the Kimochis® “emotional vocabulary” that gives educators, parents and children a common language to guide positive behavior in social and academic settings. The unique and compelling Kimochis® characters and feelings that engage children, and keep the learning fun and interesting will be presented.
