Teaching Tools to Support Social Emotional Learning

You have the power right now to create a community of support for yourself and those you help through your digital device. During these emotionally fragile times, when we reach out to others we feel more positive, grounded, and supported—and we share these benefits with others, as well. Your virtual connection could be the best part of someone’s day—and it may be the best part of yours, too. For virtual tools to help you support social emotional learning, check out the free read aloud and downloadable resources below.

 

We thank you for NOT reading our books aloud and posting them on other online platforms because once that genie is out of the bottle we will never get it back. Instead come HERE to this page to see what’s new.
