Classrooms have evolved to meet students’ ever-changing educational needs, and our social-emotional learning (SEL) resources help teachers go beyond standard curriculum to meet those needs. With our extensive assortment of social-emotional learning tools, teachers can influence and impart young minds with skills that will set them up for lifelong success.
Students are exposed to various cultures and individuals in school, and having the skills and knowledge to navigate and understand their changing world is essential. Not only do these skills improve student behavior, but they also teach them valuable coping tools that help students complete assignments or interact with peers.
The basics, including reading, writing, and mathematics, are still the foundations of a good education, but to ensure your kids are successful in the classroom and beyond, they need to learn social-emotional skills as well.
Social-Emotional Learning Resources and Kits
Our SEL resources and kits come with everything you need to reinforce concepts about self-care, mindfulness, and more. These kits include essentials like posters, instructional guides for teachers and students, calm-down tools, and movement cards.
Every student is different, so having a variety of items to choose from to ensure student success is beneficial. Our SEL kits come with tools needed to teach kids how to recognize and express their needs. Sliding gauges allow students to express how they’re feeling non-verbally and coping guards provide them with short activities they can do when feeling frustrated or overwhelmed, like taking a walk. We also have SEL resources like yoga chips that will give students a way to work out their restlessness.
Other kits have a more narrowed focus that is still related to SEL. Social skills kits, for example, help children learn how to understand and reach to real-life situations. We also offer SEL resources like role model kits, which encourage children to be good influences in the classroom with positive behavior and leading by example.
For many students, dealing with feelings is new and uncomfortable. Ensuring they understand what’s happening and have the ability to express themselves will allow them to stay focused on assignments and create an environment that is conducive to learning.
Hands-On Activities and Projects for Students
Support SEL development with crafts like calming jars, which give students a fun project to make when they become frustrated or upset. Social skills board games give students a chance to play together while learning about friendship, showing emotions, and more. You’ll also find SEL tools to help students manage emotions, such as stress balls, sensory and fidget toys, guided yoga sets, and breathing stars.
