This is the second part of a two part post regarding social and emotional developmental expectations in elementary school. The first post focused on early elementary school (K - 2) and this post focuses on late elementary school (3 - 5).
Social and emotional development is critical for children. Children who are on the right track for social and emotional development can make connections with peers and adults, can manage conflict effectively and are more easily able to focus in school on their education.
I thought it would be helpful to lay out some expected social and emotional development for elementary school aged children.
