New SEL Resources and Strategies to Kick-start the School Year!


Ready, Set, Back to School!

The new school year is gradually starting, and we are excited to be sharing it with you! That being said, we know you have a busy year ahead, going from remote learning back to the classroom. Students and faculty alike will be faced with various thoughts, feelings, and emotional hurdles, and social-emotional skills will play a crucial part in coping with them and overcoming last year's learning loss.

SEL Resources for Teachers
To help you and your students, we have revamped our feedback cards to support quick in-class interventions and discussions on social-emotional learning and wellbeing. All cards now start with WHY the topic is important and contain concrete improvement ideas and questions to ask your students. Student feedback cards have been updated with ideas and suggestions they can try both in class and independently outside of school. The new cards will be available at the end of August. But before that, make sure to check out and utilize this example card!

Kick the year off with student wellbeing

To get your class kick-started with School Day, here are some best practices we collected from your fellow education professionals:

  1. Set a time for your students to answer and stick to it. How about five minutes for answering every Monday morning and another 15 to discuss the latest developments every Friday afternoon?
  2. Be an example. To see an adult talk openly about different feelings and the importance of mental health can be life-changing.
  3. Make learning fun! Our lesson plans are a popular (and CASEL aligned) way to learn about social-emotional skills in a creative way together with the whole class.
