    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Kaitlyn J. says, "Not even joking! Get this bundle. This is the best purchase I've gotten on TPT! I love love love and will push and support and demand that schools have SEL in their schedule. It's so important! Every lesson my students have enjoyed AND I hear them using words like responsible, perseverance, and YET all the time."

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Danielle E. says, "This bundle has been a true life saver when it comes to Social Emotional Learning in my classroom. My district does not have an SEL curriculum so I've been using this resource this year. I love how everything is organized and allows teachers to just print and go. I love all of the book recommendations and the activities that go along with the lessons. I looked at a lot of different SEL curriculums and I'm glad I chose this one. Thank you for such an awesome resource!"

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lauren G. says, "Easy for teachers to use because everything is laid out for you, with plenty of resources for each lesson - even includes books to read for each topic. The best social skills product I have purchased. "
