The "Our Caring Community" SEL curriculum is easy-to-use and includes 5 units and 22 detailed lessons FULL of printables, mini-posters, anchor charts, and hands-on activities! This curriculum will teach your students everything SEL from basic mental health skills to important life skills.

This curriculum would work wonderfully for students Kindergarten through Second grade.

You can use this curriculum during morning meetings, circle time, end of the day lessons, and across reading and writing content areas.


The foundation of every strong classroom community is built upon social-emotional learning. Before students can be ready to learn, they need to feel safe, loved, and valued.

I firmly believe that social-emotional learning skills must be explicitly taught in every classroom. Many students do not come to school with these basic social-emotional skills. Because of this, students may not know what it means to identify and talk about their feelings, how to make a friend, or use coping skills in stressful situations. These are life skills that when taught will set our students up for success well beyond our classrooms.

Research shows that when we implement Social-Emotional Learning into our teaching, students build resilience which helps them deal with trauma and other life challenges. There is also research that shows SEL leads to behavior improvements, and increased academic performance.

SEL brings parents, educators, and students together working on the same team. We all want the best for our kids and providing them with SEL tools and resources is a step in the right direction.
