★ This lesson is completely free & one of many in my social-emotional curriculum series. Each topic helps students with their social interactions and behaviors and helps provide them with the tools they need to be stronger and more caring individuals.

★ The reality of our situation is that teachers often find themselves in the position where if they don't teach social skills, no one will teach them. This curriculum is virtually prep free - it requires teachers to print or upload a few documents to a learning management system. All of the bellringer questions, discussion questions, and activities are completed for you. You can complete this lesson in less than an hour or easily extend it over several class periods.

★ Many schools are looking for a social-emotional curriculum to teach during homeroom, advisory, or study hall. Download this FREEBIE today to see if this is what you need! This is perfect as it has areas entire schools can reflect on & benefit from! Many teachers already have enough on their plates - this takes the planning and stress out of the equation! Similar curriculums require annual licenses or huge upfront investment. This requires none of those.
