Teacher Online Access
Teacher access to the curriculum is provided through an online LMS platform. Detailed instructions eliminate guesswork and stress for teachers. All the resources and links are provided for each daily plan. Teachers can easily modify lessons to meet the needs of their students.
Although teachers first comment on how beautiful the journals are, these tools are an inviting way to help students practice skills. Student journals provide a wonderful opportunity for self-reflection and build a love for writing.
Connect notes give students an appropriate way to express their concerns and problems. Teachers appreciate using connect notes to honor student needs and thoughts while giving them time and space to follow up in the best way possible. The connect notes are also useful for classroom meeting topics.
Two beautiful posters come with each classroom kit and serve as a visual to build in classroom specific SEL norms.
Why SEL (SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING)?
Current research supports the long-term benefits of SEL programs. Data shows growth in academic performance, an increased attendance and graduation rate, and a decrease in suspensions and expulsions.
It is essential to develop students who are stronger, happier, and more productive citizens. These modules seek to build resiliency and support individual growth in an achievable and impactful manner by supporting students in making connections in their learning to personal experiences.
