Elementary Collection: Social and Emotional Learning (SEL)

This collection of stories addresses topics relevant to social and emotional learning (SEL) for younger students. The stories feature themes of perseverance, coping with life’s challenges, and learning how to be kind to oneself and to others, for example. Collectively, the stories touch upon key SEL competencies and address skills such as managing emotions, setting and achieving positive goals, empathizing with others, maintaining positive relationships, and making responsible decisions. From a story about survivors of extreme hardships in Sudan to the tale of a mouse that’s being teased by his friends, these stories inspire listeners to explore social and emotional development and wellness in a variety of contexts.
