Social and Emotional Learning for the Real World
Support personal and social growth in all early readers.
Social and emotional learning (SEL) is paramount in today’s education, from preschool to high school. Children of all ages benefit from learning and applying the skills and attitudes needed to foster healthy relationships, make good choices, manage emotions and behaviors, overcome stress and challenges, and care for others. This collection provides early elementary readers with accessible text and vivid visuals to serve as their first introduction to SEL skills and attitudes. Young readers will learn how to show respect and empathy for others, do their work, and reach their goals. These invaluable skills will support personal and social growth and set a strong foundation of SEL for each early reader.
