“My students absolutely LOVED the activities in this resource! I was able to make it personalized for each class and the students were engaged the entire class time! Thank you so much for providing this resource! “
“I used the listening unit today for a counseling lesson with 1st grade. The story was perfect with real life examples they could relate to. We enjoyed the stand up and sit down for application activity. I did not do the puzzles due to time but could see utilizing that as part of a small group work. Thanks for the great resource. I am excited to use the other units as well.”
“Part of my school’s PBIS plan this year is to provide monthly themed SEL lessons to all the grades but finding material developmentally appropriate for all grades to match the theme is difficult. This resource has been a GODSEND!”
