6th Grade – Social-Emotional Learning Curriculum


A Kindness Curriculum that Gives Kids the Tools to Succeed in Life!

Our Grade 6 module provides teachers with resources to improve social, emotional, and mental wellness for elementary or primary school students aged 11-12.
Our lesson plans, activities, and printables have been designed to slot into existing schedules to make it easy for teachers or counselors to incorporate social-emotional learning, positive psychology, mindfulness, and kindness into their classrooms. 

Every teacher wants to empower their students to be their best. Research has discovered that a balanced mix of academics and heart-centered learning that nurtures the mind and soul is required for them to flourish in all aspects of life as well as their learning.

Science proves that Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) nurtures emotional intelligence (EQ), an essential ingredient for the happiness and wellbeing of all children. Research indicates that combining SEL with kindness and mindfulness boosts effectiveness and when used consistently can significantly reduce anti-social and bullying behavior to foster a positive and inclusive school community.

Our curriculum builds emotional intelligence which is essential for children to be able to strengthen and build friendships – a vital component for wellbeing. EQ enables children to recognize, understand, and control their emotions and to feel and show empathy – other important aspects of friendship.

We help teachers save precious time searching for SEL resources. Our researched, easy-to-use lesson plans, activities, and printables with step-by-step instructions, activity rubric, and evidence-based resources will engage your students and create a warm, inclusive, and safe school environment.

All modules can be used with existing and new students for as long as you choose. This represents excellent per child value.

If you want to create positive and lasting change in your school, we recommend our whole-school approach. When all students are working toward the same goal, they understand the importance of supporting one another and maintaining a culture of kindness and respect to reduce bullying.
