Teachers like you said about our SEL Programs:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This has been such a great resource as it targets so many SEL skills my students are working on! I loved how simple it was to incorporate into our daily lessons and routines. It’s been so helpful!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Our morning starts with family meeting and an SEL lesson. This resource helped me extend on my lessons beyond what our curriculum provided. This was a great place to go back to when I was stuck or needed something to supplement that days lesson.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️SEL has been a big focus this year, and early on and during testing, my kids have struggled a bit with stress. This resource helped them develop strategies for managing stress, which will be so helpful as they move onto middle school.
