What the School Care Kit will help you achieve

  • Build a class environment of calm and care through social-emotional learning (SEL) tools & techniques

  • Get through the curriculum successfully, while having engaged learners

  • Keep yourself and your students safe, resilient and connected through challenging times

  • 20 Visual Check-in Boards, each displaying 6 images to help students explain how they are feeling at the present moment
