SEL Curriculum

Award-winning author Jill Apperson Manly’s books are the focus of this culturally sensitive SEL Curriculum for K-3rd graders. Yoga and mindfulness lessons for the teacher and the student create a thoughtful experience for the educator before delivering the lesson to children. In the first of the series, K-1st students experience the world through Nothando’s Journey, which takes the class to Eswatini. Continuing in Ahmed’s Journey, 2nd- 3rd graders travel to the Arabian Peninsula. Throughout these journeys, students experience real-life festivals, emotions, and feelings with children their own age.

The simple global message is:

“We are more alike than different.”
