From Nancy Boyles, author of Classroom Reading to Engage the Heart and Mind, this Guide helps ease the stress of transition to remote learning OR to a return to classrooms, for teachers and students alike. This guide features 15 award-winning picture books to facilitate conversations about social emotional issues, carefully chosen for age-appropriate themes matched to 5 SEL skills as well as to highlight different aspects of diversity. The suggested units, which include questions to pose about each book and theme, are:

  • Find Your Happy: Staying Positive
  • Making Choices: Choosing Kindness
  • Rise and Shine: Overcoming Challenges to Succeed
  • Voice Lessons: Using Your Voice to Inspire Change
  • Equity: With Social Justice for All

This QRG in the new set of Strategies for Distance Learning Guides is an invaluable resource, providing a ready-made curriculum within which to explore children’s social emotional needs as they seek to understand how to relate to a world that has changed dramatically. The mini-lessons can be conducted either in a traditional classroom session or online. Its companion Guide, Take Heart 3-6, provides content for older students.

Each 8.5" x 11" multi-panel guide is laminated for extra durability and 3-hole-punched for binder storage.
