Introducing the
KidConnect Ready2Learn
Curriculum for Grade 1 -5

KidConnect Hard to Learn_edited.jpg

There are students in your classroom who aren't learning because they can't manage their emotions and they need to be taught how.

Based on the science that emotions drive behavior, KidConnect Ready2Learn Curriculum provides teachers with the tools to help learners identify, understand and manage their emotions, which allows them to be in control of their behavior and engaged in learning. This comprehensive curriculum is for whole-class instruction and includes lessons centered on the CASEL core SEL skills.

The KidConnect Read2Learn Curriculum was created to be taught as a single stand alone grade or ideally as a full elementary curriculum. Each lesson is easy to teach and you can begin at any grade level.

 

Grade Levels are all based on the same core research but are designed to be developmentally appropriate for the different age groups with scope and sequence building as students advance through their elementary career. 

Grade 1 focuses exclusively on the ability to identify emotions and develops a solid baseline given the student age developmental level.

Grade 2 adds the important connection of emotions to behavior. It also introduces simple mindfulness lessons to students.

Grade 3 deepens the emotions-behavior connection and introduces the critical element of how to manage emotions using strategies.

Grade 4 adds additional lessons and practice to deepen the emotions-behavior-strategies connection.

Grade 5 is designed for upper elementary students who can learn about the emotions-behavior-strategies and mindfulness connection at a faster pace with greater peer interactions and independence.
