Curriculum by Grade Level

Grade K - 3 Adopted Social Emotional Learning Curriculum

In grades K-3, instruction must be in Social Emotional Learning (SEL) - learning to do things like manage feelings, set goals, and get along with others. Instruction must be consistent with Social and Emotional Learning Standards and Benchmarks. (Note: there is no sexuality content required for students in grades K-3.)

Second Step Elementary helps teach kids skills that can help them in school, at work, and in life, such as listening, focusing attention, making friends, and problem-solving. The lesson sequence is research-based, so we recommend you teach the lessons in order.
