The Byron V. Garrett Social-Emotional Learning Collection provides the tools for educators and families to help elementary school students develop the social and emotional skills they'll need to flourish in school, with their peers, and in life. Each grade-level collection includes texts that support and mirror the feelings students begin to experience, ranging from stories of self-awareness and self-management to building confidence and respect. Through engaging conversations about the texts with teachers, parents, and classmates, students make connections to the issues they face and gain insights that help navigate their expanding world.
