    What is mind+heart?

    The mind+heart social-emotional learning curriculum was designed to help teachers instruct young children to develop emotional literacy, self-control, and social competence. The ultimate goal is for primary aged children to develop a healthy sense of self and positive peer relations that will continue throughout their lives.

    Children will learn to express their emotions appropriately, solve problems, develop a “growth mindset”, build relationships, and be thoughtful, empathetic citizens who take responsibility and show respect.

    mind+heart includes a variety of thought-provoking lessons and discussions, community building ideas, and engaging activities to help build important social and emotional skills. Children will have many opportunities to learn, practice, and develop SEL through a variety of lessons and activities.

    mind+heart loosely aligns with the CASEL framework of the 5 core competencies for SEL, as well as other state SEL initiatives, which are research-based. It provides educators with an affordable option that is comprehensive and appropriate for the K-2 classroom.

    What units are included in the mind+heart SEL curriculum?

    Emotions Unit 1: Identifying and labeling; What causes emotions; Expressing emotions; Labelling experiences.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Mrs. G. says, "I cannot even begin to explain how relieved I am to have found this resource. I have used recommended published SEL curriculums such as Second Step and they have not even begun to address the needs of my students. (I am a general ed, first grade teacher, in a diverse title 1 school with a high population of ELLs... the needs of my students go beyond the average- ADHD, anxiety, PTSD, abuse, autism, etc.). I started off with "Self-Regulation" and it was perfect! Thank you so much! I bought this with my own money, without my principal's consent, but once I started using it, and showed her how my students were using the language, vocabulary, and responding to the curriculum, she reimbursed me! Thank you so much. I am recommending it to all my fellow teachers and I hope they purchase it as well!"

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Teaching at 7000 ft says, "My students love when we have our mind and heart time! This is a superb resource, and if you are thinking twice, just do it!! You won't be disappointed!!"

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Debora C. says, "BUY IT! Don't think about it. Just buy it! Awesome! Perfectly planned, amazing resources, and everything ready to use. I love it! So do my little ones! :)"

    ♥♥Teach grades 3-5? The mind+heart Social Emotional Learning Curriculum for 3-5 is available for a SPECIAL DISCOUNT. You will get an entire year’s worth of lessons (40 included) and activities to help older kids to develop emotional literacy, self-control, and social competence! ♥♥
