According to The Collaborative for Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL), more than two decades of research show that social and emotional learning programs not only improve behavior and relationships skills, but also increase students’ academic success. Integrating social and emotional learning goals into an academic context makes sense for everyone. With this in mind, Day One piloted interactive, practice-based, healthy relationships workshops to children in elementary school.

Today, Day One has a series of educational materials entitled “Let’s Talk About Healthy Friendships” for youth-serving professionals and parents/caregivers.

The collaboration is designed for elementary teachers, principals, and counselors. With materials designed to meet national standards for grades 4-5, it gives students the tools to manage their emotions and treat friends with respect. View and download the lesson plans from the links below.

Day One is excited to continue our collaboration with The Jerome Chazen Fund and other partners to develop even more resources and materials for teachers in grades K-5. Keep checking our site for updates on our progress.
